In brief: Many.
Malignant tumors can be treated with any number of chemotherapy agents including doxorubicin, cytoxan, taxol, taxotere, 5fu, vincristine, vinblastine, bleomycin, methotrexate, Gemzar and Navelbine (vinorelbine) and Cisplatin to name a few.
Which agents are used depends upon the type of tumor being treated. Other modalities can also have an effect on tumors- radiation therapy, hyperthermia, cryosurgery, etc.
