|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Cediranib + Paclitaxel|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|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).|
|Cediranib||AZD-2171|Recentin|AZD2171|AZD 2171||KIT Inhibitor 50 VEGFR1 Inhibitor 5 VEGFR2 Inhibitor 35 VEGFR3 Inhibitor 5||Cediranib (AZD-2171) is an ATP-competitive inhibitor of all three vascular endothelial growth factor receptors (FLT1, KDR, and FLT4) and KIT, thereby blocking VEGF-signaling, angiogenesis, and tumor cell growth (PMID: 15899831, PMID: 24714778, PMID: 32444417).|
|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).|

|Unknown unknown||lung cancer||no benefit||Carboplatin + Cediranib + Paclitaxel||Phase I||Actionable||In a Phase II clinical trial of patients with advanced NSCLC, the combination of Cediranib (AZD-2171) and carboplatin/paclitaxel (CP) chemotherapy resulted in improved response rate over placebo plus CP, but did not improve progression-free survival, and the study did not proceed to Phase III due to toxicity (PMID: 24360368).||24360368|
