Chemotherapy drug preparation. Male pharmacist injecting doxorubicin into an intravenous (IV) drip bag in the cytotoxic unit of a hospital cancer ward. He is working in a glove box and is wearing protective clothing. Cytotoxic drugs are toxic chemicals that destroy rapidly dividing cells such as cancer cells. Each cancer patient needs an individual drug preparation. Here the drug will be gradually administered into the bloodstream using the IV drip. Photographed at Newcastle General Hospital, England.
