Reduction in WBC: Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) can be used in two ways. When given in combination with other chemotherapeutic agents such as CMF it has strong tumoricdal effects on the treated lesion such as breast carcinoma. It essentially acts in a similar fashion on DNA the way nitrogen mustard effected tumors in the past. When used in low doses, it is effective in minimizing suppressor T cell activity.
