Cancer Chemotherapy & Pharmacology

Chemotherapy or chemo drugs are used to treat cancer, either alone or recombining with another medicines. Also called as ‘cytotoxic drug . Chemotherapy drugs actually targeted the new forming cells at different phases. Different chemo drugs are there like Alkylating agents, antimetabolites agents, anti tumor antibiotics, Topoisomerase inhibitors, mitotic inhibitors, corticosteroids are helps to destroy, shrink or control the abnormal cells.

Antibody agents are also used for cancer. Proteins, that target specific molecules on the surface of cancer cells. Antibody which is going to used are specifically engineered to target certain types of cancer cells.

Pharmacology, study of drugs. It consists of two main areas : pharmacokinetics(how body reacts to drug) & pharmacodynamics (what drug does to body). Pharmacology Consists of molecular carcinogenesis, biochemical pharmacology, Radiation biology, and clinical pharmacology. Cancer Pharmacology helps to understand the biology of cancer drug targets, the mode of action, and mechanisms of response and resistance to anticancer agents, also develop novel concepts and strategies for more effective cancer treatment.
