Answer

Antineoplastic agents

Antineoplastic agents inhibit cell growth and proliferation.

Streptozocin (Zanosar)

Streptozocin has a high affinity for neuroendocrine cells, inhibits cell proliferation, and is cytolytic. This agent interferes with normal DNA function by alkylation and protein modification.
