Abstract :

Cancer is an exception to the coordinated interaction among cells and organs. The goal of cancer treatment is first to eradicate the cancer. If this primary goal cannot be accomplished, the goal of cancer treatment shifts to palliation, the amelioration of symptoms, and preservation of quality of life while striving to extend life. Cancer treatments are divided into four main types: surgery, radiation therapy (including photodynamic therapy), chemotherapy (including hormonal therapy and molecularly targeted therapy), and biologic therapy (including immunotherapy and gene therapy). Antineoplastic agents are the drugs used to treat cancer. They are also called as cancer drugs, cytotoxic agents or anticancer drugs. Paul Ehrlich first coined the term chemotherapy. Antineoplastic drugs are most effective against rapidly dividing tumor cells. Every year FDA approved few drugs in the armamentarium of a Medical Oncologist to treat cancer. In the year 2015, nine drugs have been approved till date for cancer treatment.
