    What is the difference between R-CVP and R-CHOP chemo?

    I keep seeing all the initials of different types of drugs, it's hard to sort them out.

      Here is a site which breaks down the various regimens: http://chemoregimen.com/Home-1.html
      These listings are constantly changing, as advancements in medication (and reductions in toxicity) are replacing some of the worst of the drugs in these combinations with less toxic/more effective targeted drugs. Hope this helps.
