This oncology drug interaction database identifies drug interactions between anticancer drugs & single-agent and multiple-agent chemotherapy regimens with Central Nervous System (CNS)-related drugs & Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAMs).

OncoRx currently focuses on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions as they explain most of the clinically-relevant interactions among these agents.
