|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Bevacizumab||Avastin||VEGF Antibody 10 VEGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 32||Avastin (bevacizumab) is a monoclonal antibody that binds VEGF and inhibits binding to VEGFR, potentially resulting in decreased tumor growth (PMID: 15136787). Avastin (bevacizumab) is FDA approved for use in colorectal cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, glioblastoma, renal cell carcinoma, cervical carcinoma, and ovarian cancer, and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel in epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer (FDA.gov).|
|Carboplatin||Paraplatin||CBDCA||Chemotherapy - Platinum 6||Paraplatin (carboplatin) is a second-generation platinum compound and is activated intracellularly to form reactive platinum complexes that cross link DNA with DNA and with proteins. This induces apoptosis and inhibits cell growth (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|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).|
|Paclitaxel||Taxol||7-Epipaclitaxel||Antimicrotubule Agent 12 BCL2 Family Inhibitor 6||Taxol (paclitaxel) binds to tubulin to inhibit microtubule disassembly, which results in decreased cell division, and also binds to the anti-apoptotic factor Bcl-2, promoting apoptosis (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
