|Therapy Name||Decitabine + Gefitinib|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Decitabine||Dacogen||5-aza-2-deoxycytidine||DNMT inhibitor (Pan) 5||Dacogen (decitabine) is cytidine analog that incorporates into DNA and forms covalent bonds with DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs), resulting in decreased DNMT activity and hypomethylation, and potentially leading to reduced tumor growth (PMID: 28159832, PMID: 25130173). Dacogen (decitabine) is FDA approved for use in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (FDA.gov).|
|Gefitinib||Iressa||ZD1839||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 54 EGFR Inhibitor 1st gen 3||Iressa (gefitinib) is a first-generation EGFR inhibitor that binds EGFR and inhibits downstream signaling, potentially resulting in decreased growth of tumors with EGFR activation (PMID: 26980062, PMID: 25302162, PMID: 15284455). Iressa (gefitinib) is FDA approved for use in patients with non-small cell lung cancer harboring an EGFR exon 19 deletion or EGFR L858R (FDA.gov).|
