Systemic therapy: Chemotherapy is a type of systemic therapy for cancer. Chemo can be given intravenously by IV or some chemo has oral formulations that can be taken by mouth. For certain cancers, like ovarian cancer, chemo can be given via intraperitoneal administration which is done through a surgically implanted catheter that allows passage of fluids into the abdomen of a woman.
