Alkylating antineoplastic agents is an alkylating agent for treatment of cancer. Before it was discovered that they worked in chemotherapy, alkylating agents were used in World War I as chemical weapons. They work by essentially attacking the DNA, which causes uncoiling and separation of the strands which keeps them from dividing.
