Market Analysis and Size                             

The high mortality rate and widespread occurrence of cancer have prompted scientists to work on developing better cancer treatment alternatives. Alkylating agents were one of the first types of cancer treatments to be developed. These are the first nonhormonal medications to be used successfully to treat cancer. Alkylating agents are traditionally divided into two types: SN1 and SN2. The SN1 agents react with biological substances directly. Agents of the SN2 class generate an intermediate, which then reacts with biological molecules. Alkylating drugs hinder cancer cells from reproducing by destroying DNA strands. Alkylating drugs have activity against cancer cells at all stages of their life cycle, making them helpful in treating a variety of malignancies.
