Vaccines have been developed which prevent the infection that occurs due to some carcinogenic virusesHuman papillomavirus vaccine (Gardasil and Cervarix) decrease the risk of developing Cervical Cancer. The Hepatitis B vaccine decrease the risk of Liver Cancer. The administration of Human papillomavirus and Hepatitis B vaccinations are advised most commonly. Some drugs that are being used for Cancer are Cabazitaxel, Capecitabine, Carboplatin, and CetuximabChemotherapy drug combinations include Cisplatin and Crizotinib. Most of the anti-cancer drugs act by inhibiting DNA synthesis in the cell growth cycle, because anti-cancer drugs generally affect rapidly dividing cells and non-cancerous cells. The site of the cells which is affected determines the side-effects of individual drugs. Other cells that are affected include blood cells which fights against  the infection, helps in the blood clotting and carry oxygen to all parts of the body.
