|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Methotrexate + Rituximab|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Carboplatin||Paraplatin||CBDCA||Chemotherapy - Platinum 6||Paraplatin (carboplatin) is a second-generation platinum compound and is activated intracellularly to form reactive platinum complexes that cross link DNA with DNA and with proteins. This induces apoptosis and inhibits cell growth (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Methotrexate||Abitrexate||Amethopterin||Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11||Methotrexate is an antimetabolite, which inhibits DHFR resulting in decreased immune function and antineoplastic activity and is FDA approved for psoriasis, RA, and several cancers including choriocarcinoma, AML, lung, head and neck and epidermoid (FDA.gov).|
|Rituximab||Rituxan||IDEC-C2B8|MabThera||CD20 Antibody 10||Rituxan (rituximab) is a chimeric mononclonal antibody that binds to CD20 on B-cells, resulting in induction of complement-dependent and antibody-dependent cytotoxicity, and potentially leading to decreased B-cell tumor growth (PMID: 28983798). Rituxan (rituximab) is FDA approved for use as monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy in CD20-positive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and in combination with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide in CD20-positive chronic lymphocytic leukemia (FDA.gov).|
