- Alkylating agent : A highly reactive chemical that introduces alkyl radicals into biologically active molecules and thereby prevent their proper functioning. Many are used as antineoplastic agents, but most are very toxic, with carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic, and immunosuppressant actions.
- Antineoplastic agent : Drug that prevents the development, maturation, or spread of neoplastic cells.
- Asthma : Disease process that is characterised by paradoxical narrowing of the bronchi, making breathing difficult.
- Chemical weapon : A weapon that cause death or disease by means of chemical interaction with the metabolism of the victim, as opposed to causing injury through blast, thermal, or other effects not on a molecular level
- Cyclophosphamide : A medication and immunosuppressive agent used to treat lymphoma and leukemia.
- Cytarabine : A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that inhibits DNA synthesis, used as an antineoplastic agent, antiviral and immunosuppressant.
- Folic acid antagonist : Inhibitors of the enzyme, dihydrofolate reductase converts dihydrofolate (FH2) to tetrahydrofolate (FH4). They are used as antineoplastic agents and immunosuppressants
- Food and Drug Administration : The agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services responsible for regulating food, dietary supplements, drugs, biological medical products, blood products, medical devices, radiation-emitting devices, veterinary products, and cosmetics.
- Hypercholesterolemia : Presence of an abnormally large amount of cholesterol in the cells and plasma of the circulating blood.
- Leukemia : Progressive but treatable disease of the leukocytes in the blood and their precursors in bone marrow; classified by the maturity of the proliferating cells
- Lymphocyte : Leukocyte originating in lymphoid tissues, fundamental to the immune system, regulating and participating in acquired immunity, with receptor molecules on its surface that bind to a specific antigen.
- Mechlorethamine : An antineoplastic agent, principally used for Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, of the family of nitrogen mustards in the class of alkylating agents.
- Medication : A licensed drug taken to cure or reduce symptoms of an illness or medical condition.
- Nitrogen mustards : A group of alkylating agents derived from mustard gas, with the sulfur replaced by nitrogen, originally chemical weapons but now used as highly toxic antineoplastic agents and immunosuppressants
- Psoriasis : Common chronic, squamous dermatosis, marked by exacerbations and remissions and having a polygenic inheritance pattern.
- Rheumatoid arthritis : A chronic, inflammatory autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to attack the joints.
- Tacrolimus : A macrolide with a number of immunosuppressant applications in medicine, originally introduced to prevent rejection of transplanted organs
- Thiotepa : An antineoplastic agent, of the nitrogen mustard family of alkylating agents, used as a second-line agent against some cancers, and for malignant effusions.
- Tumor necrosis factor-alpha : Cytokine involved in systemic inflammation and is a member of a group that stimulates the acute phase reaction
