Doxorubicin and Prostate Cancer Chemotherapy


Doxorubicin is a chemotherapy drug used in the treatment of prostate cancer and delivered by injection. Doxorubicin works by binding to the DNA of a cell and inhibiting the production of protein. Doxorubicin is derived from a bacterium called Streptomyces peuceticus. The injection of doxorubicin could possibly cause extravasion injury during which the drug escapes the vein and irritates the skin.
