Answer

Antineoplastics, Antimetabolite

These agents regulate cell growth and differentiation.

Methotrexate (Trexall, Rheumatrex)

Methotrexate is an antimetabolite that inhibits DNA synthesis and cell reproduction in malignant cells. It has an unknown mechanism of action in the treatment of inflammatory reactions; it may affect immune function. Methotrexate ameliorates symptoms of inflammation (eg, pain, swelling, stiffness).
