antimetabolites

[an-tee-muh-TAB-o-lites or an-tie-muh-TAB-o-lites] substances that interfere with the body’s chemical processes, such as those that create deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and other chemicals needed for cell growth and reproduction. In treating cancer, antimetabolite drugs disrupt DNA production, which in turn prevents cell division and tumor growth. See also deoxyribonucleic acid.
