Answer

Standard chemotherapy regimens that are commonly used in the relapsed setting include hyper-CVAD, other high-dose cytarabine-based regimens, and MOAD (methotrexate, vincristine, asparaginase, and dexamethasone).  

Newer agents that are approved in the salvage setting are listed below. These are used either alone or in combination with other agents.
