In brief: Many cancers
Cytarabine (also known as ara-c) is a very important and widely used chemotherapy agent.
It is used in leukemia treatment, as well as for solid tumors. It works by inhibiting dna synthesis in such a way that cancer cells are unable to repair the damage cause by the drug, but normal cells can recover.
