Darbepoetin Alfa-erythropoietic hematopoeitic-stimulates erythropoeis by the same mechanism as endogenous erythropoietin-Indicated in anemia in neoplastic disease due to chemotherapy-non-myeloid malignancy
Also indicated in anemia of chronic renal failure
Procrit
Indicated in anemia in neoplastic disease due to chemotherapy (non-myeloid malignancy)
Epoetin alfa-Used for anemia of chronic renal failure
-Anemia-Zidovudine adverse reaction
Neulasta
Pegfilgrastim-Used for febrile neutropenia. In patients with non-myeloid malignancies recieving myelosuppressive anti-cancer drugs associated with a clinically significant incidence of febrile neutropenia; Prophylaxis
Remicade
Infliximab-Chimeric human-murine immunoglobulin monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-alpha, a proinflammatory cytokine
Zofran
Ordansetron-Used for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Initial and repeat courses of highly emetogenic chemotherapy; Prophylaxis

Eloxatin
Oxaliplatin-Used for colon cancer
Protonix
Pantoprozole-PPI that covalently binds to H+K+Atpase enzyme system at the secretory surface of the gastric parietal cell, which suppresses the final setep in gastric acid production and leads to inhibition of both basal and stimulated acid secretion.
Integrilin
Eptifibatide-Used for acute coronary syndrome with or without percutaneous coronary intervention
Inhibits platelet aggregation by reversibly binding to the platelet receptor glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa of human platelets, thus preventing the binding of fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor and other adhesive ligands
