Instead of dying, form abnormal cells
DNA damage
Cells invade tissue
Most cancerous cells form tumors
cancer cells get into the body’s bloodstream or lymph vessels.
tumors replace normal tissue. The process of cancer spreading is called metastasis.
Regardless where cancer spreads, named after place of origin What is Chemotherapy? Drugs that interfere with cancer cell's ability to grow or multiply (cancer cells multiply and divide quickly)
DNA-damaging agents. "Alkylating agents", damage the DNA so severely that the cancer cell is killed.
Antitumor antibiotics. Insert themselves into a cancer cell's DNA, prevent the DNA from functioning normally and often kill the cancer cell. (Doxorubicin)
Antimetabolites. Mimic the substances that the cancer cell needs to build DNA and RNA. When the cancer cell uses the antimetabolite instead of the natural substances, it can't produce normal DNA or RNA and the cell dies.
DNA-repair enzyme inhibitors. Repair of DNA damage is a normal and vital process in the cell. Without this repair process, the cancer cell is much more susceptible to damage and is prevented from growing. These agents attack the cancer cell proteins that normally repair DNA damage
Can harm healthy cells that divide quickly as well (mouth, intestine, hair growth cells, bone marrow) 1/2 all men, 1/3 all women have cancer

comes as a solution (liquid) or as a powder to be mixed with liquid to be injected In a newer formulation, Doxil, the drug is surrounded by a lipid 'bubble' (membrane). This formulation is an attempt to reduce the toxicity of the drug by blocking its effects on normal tissues. Side Effects Chemobrain Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy can cause problems with cognitive (mental) functions, such as concentration, memory and the ability to multitask. Most chemotherapy patients experience these effects to some degree. The effects are sometimes referred to as chemobrain or brain fog More Chemical Properties Melting Point: 229 - 231 degrees Celcius

There are three main types of cardiomyopathy — dilated, hypertrophic and restrictive. Cardiomyopathy makes it harder for the heart to pump blood and deliver it to the rest of the body.
