Synonyms
Therapy Description

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
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).
Cetuximab Erbitux IMC-C225 EGFR Antibody 29 Erbitux (cetuximab) is a monoclonal antibody directed against EGFR, which inhibits signal transduction and cell proliferation (PMID: 28695301). Erbitux (cetuximab) is FDA approved for use in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and KRAS wild-type, EGFR positive colorectal cancer (FDA.gov).
Fluorouracil Adrucil 5-FU Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11 Adrucil (fluorouracil) is an antimetabolite chemotherapeutic agent, which interferes with DNA and RNA synthesis thereby preventing cancer cell growth and is FDA approved for colorectal, breast, stomach, and pancreatic cancer (FDA.gov).
