Answer

The following induction regimens are given as initial treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma:

  • MOPP (mechlorethamine, vincristine [Oncovin], procarbazine, prednisone)

  • ABVD (doxorubicin [Adriamycin], bleomycin, vinblastine, dacarbazine)

  • A+AVD (brentuximab vedotin [Adcetris], doxorubicin, vinblastine, dacarbazine)
  • Stanford V (doxorubicin, vinblastine, mustard, bleomycin, vincristine, etoposide, prednisone)

  • BEACOPP (bleomycin, etoposide, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, procarbazine, prednisone)

All the medications in these regimens are given intravenously, except for prednisone and procarbazine, which are given orally.
