Chemotherapy is a category of cancer treatment that uses chemical substances, especially one or more anti-cancer drugs Traditional chemotherapeutic agents are cytotoxic, that is to say they act by killing cells that divide rapidly, one of the main properties of most cancer cells.

These treatments often used alongside traditional chemotherapeutic agents in antineoplastic treatment regimens.
