Basic principles of cancer chemotherapy include the following EXCEPT

A. Intermittent dose schedules are generally followed to restore the
drug-induced damage of bone marrow

B. Cancers with shorter mass doubling times are less susceptible than
those with longer mass doubling time

C. Cancerous tissue possessing a small growth fraction is less susceptible
than with a larger growth fraction

D. Repair of DNA in normal cells is relatively more rapid than in cancer
cells

E. Optimal dosages are based upon maximum tolerated dose

I always had the understanding that more rapidly dividing tissues, of any
kind, were in general more susceptible to chemotherapeutic damage (the
reason for predominantly bone marrow or gastrointestinal side effects from
many kinds of chemotherapy.).
