There are currently five off-label drugs such as Oncovin (vincristine), Adriamycin (doxorubicin), Cytoxan/Neosar (cyclophosphamide), Ifex (ifosfamide) and Vepesid (etoposide) which have been moderately effective in the treatment of Ewing's sarcoma.
Treatment for stage IVB Hodgkin lymphoma was begun, consisting of cytoxan, oncovin, prednisone, and procarbazine alternating with adriamycin, bleomycin, and vinblastine.
Other Ewing's sarcoma treatments which are 'off-label' include Vepesid (etoposide); Oncovin (vincristine); Ifex (ifosfamide); Adriamycin (doxorubicin) and Cytoxan/Neosar (cyclophosphamide).
Combined chemotherapy consisting of 6 courses of standard CHOP (cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunomycin, Oncovin [vincristine], and prednisone) and additional 25 sessions of 45 Gy of fractionated radiation treatment were administered.
