This section on chemotherapy includes a massive load of drug categories, names,
mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetic properties, adverse effects, and major indications. It
can be overwhelming if one does not keep up! It is guaranteed that you will not be able to
master the material in the week before the exam.
An excellent approach to this material is to first be sure you know the various categories of
drugs that will be presented and the drugs that belong to those categories. Except for very
commonly used drugs and drugs that constitute important prototypes, for this course we will
assume that members of the group inherit group characteristics. Therefore, a reasonable
approach is as follows:
- Understand and be able to describe mechanisms of action of the drug groups
- Understand and be able to describe the basis of selectivity of each drug group
- Know the various schemes by which the drugs are categorized
- Know and be able to write the names of major members of each drug group /
- Be able to assign all drugs discussed to a category on a "recognition" basis. to learn
the groups, members of the groups, and major group characteristics
