Doxorubicin is an anthracycline antibiotic, commonly used in the treatment of solid tumors in adult and pediatric patients. It acts by intercalating between DNA base pairs, thereby preventing DNA replication and inhibiting protein synthesis. It also inhibits topoisomerase II, resulting in increased and stabilized cleavable-DNA linked complex during DNA replication. It also produces cytotoxic effects secondary to peroxidation of membrane lipids by forming free radicals
