Cancerous tumors are characterized by cell division, which is nolonger controlled as it is in normal tissue. "Normal"cells stop dividing when they come into contact with like cells, a mechanismknown as contact inhibition. Cancerous cells lose this ability. Cancer cells no longer have the normal checks and balances in place thatcontrol and limit cell division. The process of cell division, whethernormal or cancerous cells, is through the cell cycle. The cell cycle goesfrom the resting phase, through active growing phases, and then to mitosis(division).
The ability of chemotherapy to kill cancer cells depends on itsability to halt cell division. Usually, the drugs work by damaging theRNA or DNA that tells the cell how to copy itself in division. If thecells are unable to divide, they die. The faster the cells are dividing,the more likely it is that chemotherapy will kill the cells, causing the tumorto shrink. They also induce cell suicide (self-death or apoptosis).
