Answer

Other regimens

Older multidrug regimens included (1) cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin (Adriamycin), and cisplatin regimen, which includes cyclophosphamide at 500 mg/m2 IV, Adriamycin at 40-50 mg/m2 IV, and cisplatin at 40-50 mg/m2 IV all given q4wk for 4-6 courses; (2) cisplatin and doxorubicin; and (3) cyclophosphamide, actinomycin, and 5-fluorouracil. These regimens have the benefit of fewer and less serious adverse effects. However, response rates often were poorer than for those of the newer cisplatin-based regimens.
