Caption: Intravenous chemotherapy. View of a 67 year old woman using a PICC line to administer chemotherapy drugs for the treatment of ovarian cancer. The PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central (venous) Catheter) line allows the patient to administer their own dose of drugs using a special pump (lower centre). Cancer chemotherapy, the treatment of cancer with drugs, attempts to destroy tumours by damaging their DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and interfering with tumour cell replication. However, the drugs tend to act on all rapidly dividing cells (for example, in bone marrow), not just tumour cells, and many have unpleasant and debilitating side effects.
