New advancements are being made in the treatment of cancer with chemotherapy, but unfortunately, most patients will still experience uncomfortable or painful side effects from treatment. One benefit of Chemotherapy Resistance/Sensitivity Testing like ChemoFx, is that it can help find effective chemotherapy treatments for the individual patient, preventing the toxicity a patient experiences due to ineffective drugs, incompatible with their unique biology.

Amifostine is used therapeutically to reduce the incidence of neutropenia-related fever and infection induced by DNA-binding chemotherapeutic agents including alkylating agents (e.g. cyclophosphamide) and platinum-containing agents (e.g. cisplatin). It is also used to decrease the cumulative nephrotoxicity associated with platinum-containing agents. Amifostine is also indicated to reduce the incidence of xerostomia in patients undergoing radiotherapy for head and neck cancer.
