Abstract

Cancer cells are more vulnerable than normal cells to the effect of chemotherapy agents. Agents in cancer therapies are aimed at inducing apoptosis. In this work, a short review of the most important anticancer drugs, has been presented. There are two types of anticancer drugs: smart drugs and gene drugs. So-called “smart drugs” are directed towards specific signalling pathways responsible for tumor growth and target specific antigen, growth factor, receptor or other molecule in the signalling pathway of interest. On the other hand, so-called ‘‘gene drugs’’ are directed towards targeting the DNA molecule.
