Answer

Antineoplastics, Alkylating

Treatment with trabectedin may be considered in patients who have already received an anthracycline.

Trabectedin (Yondelis)

Trabectedin is an alkylating drug that binds guanine residues in the minor groove of DNA. It is indicated for unresectable or metastatic liposarcoma or leiomyosarcoma in patients who have received a prior anthracycline-containing regimen.
