Which of the following is true about cell cycle specific (CCS) drugs? A. They are only effective at a particular phase of the cell cycle. B. They are typically administered to outpatients. C. They do not cause many adverse effects. D. They are most effective during the metaphase of the cell cycle.
A. They are only effective at a particular phase of the cell cycle. Explanation: Cell cycle specific (CCS) drugs are often used in cancer treatment. As their name suggests, they are effective at different parts of the cell cycle. This means, for example, that some CCS drugs may interfere with DNA synthesis while other CCS drugs may prevent mitosis, or cell division.

use of chemicals as a systemic therapy for cancer -role of chemo: cure, control, palliative relief of Sxs -basics of chemo: goal is to eliminate or reduce the # of malignant cells in tumor, cell cycle specific (most effective during certain phases of cell cycle) and non-specific (effective on cells during all phases of cycle)-administered in combo to maximize effectiveness, dose limiting toxicities (hypersensitivity, alopecia, vomiting, organ damage), adjuvant therapy (helps get rid of any cancer that was missed), doesn’t work if it isn’t taken -administration: routes: IV (most common)-concerns include venous access difficulties, device or cath related infection and extravasation (infiltration of drugs into tissues surround the infusion site) causing local tissue damage, oral, subQ, etc; safety: for pt and nurse-make sure you have very good IV access; where gown and gloves (special chemo gloves), urine handling-flush commode twice, double glove and gown Tx: combining agents in multi drug regimens is most effective but increase in toxicity occurs Nursing: monitor for and promptly recognize Sxs associated w/ extravasation of a vesicant (causes severe local tissue breakdown and necrosis), immediately turn off the infusion and follow protocols for drug specific extravasation procedures to minimize further tissue damage, admin IV chemo through CVAD

Cell cycle specific vs cell cycle non-specific
Certain types of chemotherapeutic agents require cells to be *cycling to be active* -CELL CYCLE SPECIFIC-> Anti-metabolites (Methotrexate, etc) Other types of chemo are active INDEPENDENT of whether cells are cycling or not (although MORE active if cycling)-> direct DNA damage – CELL CYCLE NON-SPECIFIC-> Alkylators (analogous to radiation therapy)

Cell Cycle Specific Drugs
Used to treat rapidly growing tumors Attack when cancer cells enter a specific phase of cell reproduction Administered in multiple repeated doses to produce a greater cell kill and halt growth of tumor cells
