Anti Cancer Medicine
Anticancer medicine, also known as an antineoplastic therapy, all medications to cure illness malignant or cancerous. A variety of key forms of anti-cancer treatments exist, such as alkylating agents, antimetabolites, natural products and hormones. Moreover some medications do not come into these groups, but are used for the treatment of malignant diseases, indicating anticancer efficacy. The word chemotherapy is also equated with anticancer, although the use of chemical agents is more accurate for the treatment of illness in general. The decision to use any anti-cancer medications would depend on many aspects, such as the nature and location of the cancer, its intensity, whether it should or can be used for procedure or radiation treatment, as well as on its side effects. Many anticancer medications are delivered by intravenous means, but intramuscular or intrathecal injections may be taken by certain oral means (within the spinal cord).
