Therapy Name Hydroxychloroquine + Sirolimus
Synonyms
Therapy Description

A combination of the mTOR inhibitor Sirolimus and the antimalarial Hydroxychloroquine as antineoplastic therapy. Hydorxychloroquine may enhance the effectiveness of targeted therapy by disrupting autophagy-mediated cell survival (PMID: 21959046).

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Drug Name Trade Name Synonyms Drug Classes Drug Description
Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil HCQ Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine sulfate) increases intralysosomal pH, resulting in inhibition of autophagic protein degradation and accumulation of autophagosomes, which potentially leads to cell death in autophagy-dependent tumor cells (NCI Drug Dictionary).
Sirolimus Rapamune Rapamycin mTORC1 Inhibitor 8 Rapamune (sirolimus) binds to the FKBP-12 to generate an immunosuppressive complex that binds and allosterically inhibits mTOR (PMID: 25261369). Rapamune (sirolimus) is FDA approved for the prevention of renal transplant rejection and for patients with lymphangioleiomyomatosis (FDA.gov).
