Mitoxantrone dihydrochloride is an antiviral, antibacterial, antiprotozoal, immunomodulating, and antineoplastic cytostatic anthraquinone derivative. Induces DNA damage by intercalating into DNA and inhibiting Topo II (topoisomerase II). Mitoxantrone dihydrochloride induces interstrand DNA cross-links and DNA-protein cross-links in cellular systems. Mitoxantrone dihydrochloride has recently been shown to be an inhibitor of DNA methylation.
