Term Definition
Chemotherapy

Treatment of cancer or other diseases by the use of drugs that selectively destroy rapidly growing cells. Extremely high doses unfortunately also kill the patient's own stem cells in the bone marrow and peripheral blood stream. This is why Chemotherapy should be done in conjunction with a bone marrow or stem cell transplant, to prevent the patient from suffering grave effects from the loss of their stem cells.
