I need an explanation of drug folfox. I think that it is a combination of certain anticancer drugs. I study medicine but could not find anything about this drug in my books. In what types of cancer is it used and how? Please post and thanks in advance.

Folfox is used in treatment of advanced bowel cancer. It is a combination of fluorouracil (fol), leucovorin(folinic acid-F) and oxaliplatin (ox). It is administered intravenously. Fluorouracil can be administered separately from the other 2 drugs, in bolus injection and folinic acid and oxaliplatin are administered as an i.v. infusion. Folfox is administered in cycles and each cycle lasts for 2 weeks.
