Cancer Drug Information for Health Professionals

The NCI Drug Dictionary contains technical definitions and synonyms for drugs/agents used to treat patients with cancer or conditions related to cancer. Each drug entry includes links to check for clinical trials listed in NCI's PDQ® Cancer Clinical Trials Registry.


Information in the NCI Drug Dictionary is from the NCI Thesaurus, which is produced by NCI's Enterprise Vocabulary Services, a collaboration involving NCI's Office of Communications and Education and NCI's Center for Bioinformatics. Each drug entry includes a link to additional information available from the full NCI Thesaurus database, which contains many drugs and other terms not included here.
