Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Cancer drug research. Male researcher using pipettes to test an anticancer (chemotherapy) drug. The drug stops cells from transporting nucleosides, which form part of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), from outside the cell. This cellular activity may otherwise compromise antimetabolite chemotherapy drugs which stop cells from making use of the metabolites within them. Here, the transport of the nucleoside thymidine is being studied. The anticancer drug is added to the cell suspension, before the amount of radioactively-labelled thymidine taken up by cells within a 12 second period is measured.
