apoptosis

[a-pop-TOE-sis] programmed cell death. Apoptosis is controlled by genes that cause cells to die at certain times, for example, when DNA is damaged. This type of cell death is a normal process in the body and is different from the process of cell death by decay. Some drugs used to treat cancer cause apoptosis.
