Concept Info

NAME

Drug therapy

DESCRIPTION

Drug therapy (or pharmacotherapy) involves the administration of drugs to treat or prevent disease. In some cases – often in the treatment of disease such as cancer, HIV infection and diabetes – multiple drugs with different active ingredients may be administered, which is known as combination therapy.

12 skos:definition Drug therapy (or pharmacotherapy) involves the administration of drugs to treat or prevent disease. In some cases – often in the treatment of disease such as cancer, HIV infection and diabetes – multiple drugs with different active ingredients may be administered, which is known as combination therapy.

49 skos:definition Chemoprevention involves the use of chemical compounds or biologics to prevent or delay the development of a specific disease. For example, chemoprevention approaches are currently used in oncology to reduce the risk of cancer returning following surgery (known as secondary chemoprevention).

63 skos:definition Chemotherapy is a treatment used to kill cancer cells. It involves taking one or more of a type of drug that interferes with the DNA of fast-growing cells. These drugs are subdivided into specific classes such as alkylating agents, antimetabolites, anthracyclines and topoisomerase inhibitors.

Examples of combination therapy include treatment regimens that involve administering several separate pills, each containing a particular drug, or single pills that contain several drugs.

91 skos:definition Drug delivery describes the method and approach to delivering drugs or pharmaceuticals and other xenobiotics to their site of action within an organism, with the goal of achieving a therapeutic outcome. Issues of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics are important considerations for drug delivery.

102 skos:broader sg:ontologies/subjects/drug-therapy
103 skos:definition A molecularly targeted therapy is designed to specifically modulate the function of a protein or other cellular component linked to a particular disease; for example, specific inhibitors of protein kinase involved in cell proliferation are used to treat some cancers. Such therapies may often be used with companion diagnostics to identify patients that are most likely to respond favourably.

113 skos:definition Pharmacogenetics, related to pharmacology, is the study of the genetic variation between individuals that affects their response to drugs/pharmaceuticals and other xenobiotics, both therapeutically and in terms of adverse effects (side effects). Personalized medicine is the use of pharmacogenetics to understand how an individual can benefit from specific drugs.

124 skos:definition Therapeutics are treatments used to alleviate or prevent a particular disease. Examples of therapeutics include drug therapy, medical devices, nutrition therapy and stem-cell therapies. Therapeutics can be used in patients with active disease – to treat the disease itself or its signs and symptoms – in preventive medicine, or as palliative care.
