What are Anti Cancer Medicines?
The medicines that are effective in the treatment of malignant or cancerous diseases are considered as anti-cancer medicines. An anticancer drug can also be referred to as an antineoplastic drug.
Major Categories of Anti-Cancer Drugs
- Alkylating agents
Apart from the above mentioned ones, there are a number of drugs that are not typically as per these categories, yet they demonstrate anticancer properties and reactions, and are thus used in the treatment of malignant disease.
Anti-Cancer drugs are often referred to as chemotherapy, although it more appropriately involves usage of chemical compounds in the treatment against disease.
Factors behind choosing Cancer Medicines
The decision to use a certain anticancer drug depends on many factors, including the type and location of cancer, its severity, whether surgery or radiation therapy can or should be used, and the side effects associated with the drug.
Ways of administering Anti-Cancer Drugs
Most anticancer drugs are administered intravenously or intramuscularly or even intrathecally i,e within the spinal cord; while some can be taken orally.
Side effects of anti-cancer medicines
The side effects associated with anticancer drugs can be reduced through the use of limited doses of multiple agents. The use of multiple agents may also reduce the incidence of cellular resistance, that allows tumours to escape treatment and to continue to grow after a period of remission.
In very rare cases prolonged use of anticancer drugs might lead to the development of secondary cancers. Frequently occurring secondary cancers associated with anticancer medicines therapy are myelodysplastic syndrome and acute leukemias, whose risks get increased in case of involvements of alkylating agents and topoisomerase inhibitors like etoposide.
