|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Paclitaxel + Trastuzumab|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Carboplatin||Paraplatin||CBDCA||Chemotherapy - Platinum 7||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).|
|Paclitaxel||Taxol||7-Epipaclitaxel||Antimicrotubule Agent 13 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).|
|Trastuzumab||Herceptin||Anti HER2||HER2 (ERBB2) Antibody 53||Herceptin (trastuzumab) is a monoclonal antibody, which binds ERBB2 (HER2) to induce tumor cellular cytotoxicity (PMID: 17611206). Herceptin (trastuzumab) is FDA approved for HER2-overexpressing (or amplification) breast cancer, gastric adenocarcinoma, and gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma (FDA.gov).|
