Chemotherapy is one of the established first-line options for the treatment of colorectal cancer. Chemotherapy contains various molecules acting against multiple factors, contributing to the growth of cancer cells. Chemotherapeutic regimens can vary based on the stages of cancer and the components as well as the strength of medications. The recent addition of agents such as antibodies against various molecular targets involved, such as receptors and components of signaling pathways, resulted in even more precise therapy. 

Keywords: Chemotherapy, Components, Novel agents, Stages of cancer, Targeted therapies.
