T Is For Topotecan
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

So what is Topotecan?

For those with neuroblastoma, a malignant tumor that develops from nerve tissue (U.S. National Library of Medicine), they may be quite familiar with what Topotecan is.

But for the uninitiated, Topotecan (aka Hycamtin) is a chemotherapeutic drug that helps relieve torsional strain in DNA by opening single strand breaks and eventually prevents DNA replication of cancerous cells.

That is an affect cancer patients want, because they need to get rid of the cancerous cells and keep them from growing back. For Christian, it is the drug that made the tumors in his skull disappear.
