For example, much of the cell death induced by DNA damage occurs through apoptosis, so cancer cells that harbor defects in their cell death programs can sometimes escape the effects of cytotoxic therapy. Cancer cells vary widely in their response to radiation and to the different kinds of cytotoxic drugs, Author: Bruce Alberts, Alexander Johnson, Julian Lewis, Martin Raff, Keith Roberts, Peter Walter.

In another trial, patients are randomized to receive chemotherapy or chemotherapy plus reparixin, a drug designed to target cancer stem cells through another inflammatory pathway. Research suggests that cancer stem cells may be especially potent in triple-negative breast cancer, which represents about 15 percent of diagnoses.

Chemotherapy (sometimes called chemo) uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. Some chemotherapy drugs are given on their own. But more often, several chemotherapy drugs are given together.
