Chemotherapy regimens

Here is a list of the most common chemotherapy regimens used for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The names in brackets are alternate names for the drug. Most often the Brand name.  For example Doxorubicin is known by the brand name of Adriamycin which is why it often appears as the letter A and not D. (It also appears as the letter H since its longer name is Doxorubicin Hydrochloride)

Note: Although it is not shown in some of the protocols listed below Rituximab (Rituxan) is usually included for all chemotherapy regimens for B-cell lymphomas.
