    Specific chemotherapy is useful for treating which of the following conditions?

    1. measles
    2. hepatitis
    3. herpangina
    4. herpes conjunctivitis
    5. infectious mononucleosis

    answer: 4 (1982 exam)

    Does anyone know what they mean by chemotherapy? (e.g. would a vaccine count as chemotherapy?). I confirmed that yes, an antiviral can be used to treat herpes conjunctivitis. But is there a way to think about this question other than look up the treatments for each disease?

    Thanks!
