|Therapy Name||Cyclophosphamide + Doxorubicin + Etoposide + Filgrastim + Prednisone + Rituximab + Vincristine Sulfate|
|Synonyms||EPOCH + Filgrastim + Rituximab|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Cyclophosphamide||Cytoxan||CPM||Chemotherapy - Alkylating 14||Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) is an alkylating agent, which inhibits DNA replication (NCI Drug Dictionary). Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) is FDA approved in multiple hematological malignancies, breast cancer, neuroblastoma, ovarian cancer, and retinoblastoma (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Doxorubicin||Adriamycin||Adria|ADR||Chemotherapy - Anthracycline 11 TOPO2 inhibitor 4||Adriamycin (doxorubicin) is an anthracycline chemotherapeutic, in a non-liposomal formulation, which intercalates into DNA and inhibits topoisomerase II (PMID: 24367159). Doxorubicin is FDA approved for multiple cancer types (FDA.gov).|
|Etoposide||Vepesid||EPEG|Eposin||TOPO2 inhibitor 4||Vepesid (etoposide) binds to and inhibits DNA topoisomerase II, resulting in accumulated DNA damage, inhibition of replication, and cell death (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Filgrastim||Neupogen||G-CSF||Neupogen (filgrastim) is a recombinant analog of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) isoform B, which binds and activates G-CSF receptors modulating neutrophilic granulocyte progenitor activity, production, and differentiation (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Prednisone||Adasone||Dehydrocortisone||Adasone (prednisone) is a corticosteroid which functions as an immunosuppressant and anti-inflammatory agent and which may stimulate apoptosis in tumor cells (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Rituximab||Rituxan||IDEC-C2B8|MabThera||CD20 Antibody 8||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).|
|Vincristine Sulfate||Oncovin||22-Oxovincaleukoblastine||Oncovin (vincristine) binds microtubules and prevents mitotic spindle formation, resulting in cell-cycle arrest (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
