For infectious diseases, the goal is prolonged maintenance of plasma concentration above a minimal inhibitory concentration or minimal bactericidal concentration but below a level toxic to the host. In anticancer chemotherapy, although the general goal of killing tumor cells is clearly defined, in most cases we are severely limited by an inability to select concentration-time parameters that separate antitumor effects from normal tissue toxicity. Much remains to be learned about the differences between normal and tumor tissues that can be exploited therapeutically.
