Teniposide is in

The second chemo is in, Teniposide (brand name Vumon), was administered both yesterday and today. I looked up what the mechanism of the drug was. Teniposide acts as an inhibitor of topoisomerase II (an enzyme that aids in DNA unwinding), this causes breaks in DNA, which in turn inhibits cell division, causing cell death. Tomorrow is the last chemo of this part of course two (carmustine). If nothing out of the ordinary happens, I can go home after dinner.
