Which of the following statements best describes cell cycle–specific drugs? Response Feedback: Chemotherapeutic drugs that are most effective during a particular phase of the cycle are known as cell cycle– (or cell phase) specific, whereas drugs that act independently of a specific cell cycle (or cell phase) are cell cycle–nonspecific. Not all cell cycle– specific drugs achieve a synergistic effect with cell cycle–nonspecific drugs. These drugs are not named because of the particular sequence of cytotoxic events that they cause.

An important instruction to the patient would be to Response Feedback: The nurse should instruct the patient to omit the orlistat (Xenical) for any meal that does not contain fat. The nurse should also instruct the patient to limit dietary intake of fat to 30% of calories. This drug is a reversible lipase inhibitor. By inhibiting the action of lipase, it decreases the absorption of dietary fats. The patient would be advised to take a multivitamin that contains fat-soluble vitamins to prevent imbalances from drug therapy. The administration of orlistat and multivitamins should be separated by 2 hours. Dietary protein does not interfere with the action of orlistat.
