Currently, drug therapy of malignant tumors has achieved significant success and is an independent method of treating patients with a common tumor process. The best illustration of this is the fact that lengthening life through the use of chemotherapy becomes the rule rather than the exception. New anticancer drugs that have appeared on the market and the study of a large number of new combinations and administration of cytostatics have not supplanted, but rather strengthened the place of 5-fluorouracil synthesized in 1957 by Charles Heidelberger, which is widely used as the first line of chemotherapy in the world today. This drug is included in almost all standard and experimental chemotherapy regimens.
Keywords: chemotherapy, monochemotherapy, polychemotherapy, 5-fluorouracil, tegafur, Ftorafur.
