|Therapy Name||Cladribine + Rituximab|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Cladribine||Leustatin||2-CdA||Leustatin (cladribine) is a purine analog that is incorporated into DNA, resulting in DNA single strand breaks and apoptosis (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Rituximab||Rituxan||IDEC-C2B8|MabThera||CD20 Antibody 21||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, in combination with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide in CD20-positive chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and in combination with chemotherapy in pediatric patients (6 month to 18 years of age) with treatment-naive, CD20-positive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, Burkitt lymphoma, Burkitt-like lymphoma, or mature B-cell acute leukemia (B-AL) (FDA.gov).|
