This expert-led course provides an overview of pharmacology broken down into five sections. The first four sections cover cytotoxic therapies, overviewing DNA-damaging agents, microtubule toxins, and antimetabolites. The fifth section focuses on drug interactions in oncology and their importance in patient care.
- Describe the mechanistic action of different DNA-damaging agents and apply knowledge of DNA-damaging agents to anticipate side effects and learn common toxicities;
- Describe the mechanistic action of different microtubule toxins and antimetabolites and apply knowledge of microtubule toxins and antimetabolites to anticipate side effects and learn common toxicities; and
- Briefly describe pathways of drug-drug interactions in oncology.
