Answer

Antineoplastic Agents

These agents inhibit cell growth and proliferation.

Fluorouracil (Efudex)

Fluorouracil interferes with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthesis by blocking the methylation of deoxyuridylic acid, inhibiting thymidylate synthetase and, subsequently, cell proliferation.

Mitomycin (Mitosol, Carac)

Mitomycin interferes with DNA synthesis by alkylation and by cross-linking the strands of DNA.
