Cancer drugs. Array of intravenous drip bags in a hospital fume cupboard, with vials of cancer drugs. A nurse (reflection in glass) is preparing the drip bags with solutions of drugs to be used to treat cancer in a chemotherapy session. Many of the drugs used to treat cancer are highly toxic, so care must be taken when handling them. The drugs will be delivered directly into the patient's bloodstream. The intention is to kill the cancer cells, but many chemotherapy drugs also have severe side- effects. Photographed on the chemotherapy ward at the Avicene Hospital, Paris, France.
