Intervention of chemotherapy against cancer: A new medical era.
Cancer chemotherapy is a modality of cancer therapy that involves the injecting of chemical agents to kill the cancer cells. Cancer chemotherapy aims to cure where possible and where alleviative cure is impossible. The effective use of chemotherapy needs a deep understanding of the principles of tumour biology, cellular kinetics, pharmacology, and drug resistance. Various Principles of chemotherapy include: Chemotherapy intends to destroy as many tumour cells as possible with minimal effect on healthy cells, Cancer cells depend on the same mechanism for cell division that is found in normal cells, and Damage to those mechanisms leads to cell death. Chemotherapy works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells, which grow and divide quickly. Chemotherapy can be used to cure cancer, lessen the chance it will return or stop or slow its cell growth.Author(s): Prakash Kumar
