Articles about how chemotherapy medications work and different ways these medications are given.


Chemotherapy: The Basics

Chemotherapy is a type of medication used to treat some types of cancer. This article provides a basic introduction to chemotherapy, how it works and how it is given.

Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (IP Chemo)

Some cancers of the abdominal or gastrointestinal region can be treated using a type of chemotherapy infusion called intraperitoneal, where the medication is infused directly into the abdominal cavity.

Dose-Dense Chemotherapy

Dose-dense chemotherapy is the practice of administering chemotherapy more often but at the same dosage of a typical chemotherapy regimen. This can lead to a chemotherapy being delivered when tumor cells are growing more rapidly. 

Biosimilars

A biosimilar is a biologic medication that is almost an exact copy of another medication (the original product), leading to the same results when taken by a person. This article provides information about this new category of medications.
