This chemotherapy and cancer drugs article is about Mitozantrone (Novantrone) which works similarly to Adriamycin, but has much less cardio-toxicity.  It is therefore good for use with frailer patients with breast cancer, non-Hodgkin’s disease and lymphoma.  It is also used in the treatment of prostate cancer.  Is also sometimes referred to as Mitoxantrone.

Side effects may include: Lowered resistance to infection (but not as severe as with Adriamycin), bruising and bleeding, green/blue urine (because of the colour of the drug), nausea and vomiting, fatigue. Hair loss is rare, as are mouth sores, diarrhoea and temporary liver damage.
