|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Cetuximab + Erlotinib + Paclitaxel|
|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).|
|Cetuximab||Erbitux||IMC-C225||EGFR Antibody 41||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).|
|Erlotinib||Tarceva||CP358774||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 55 EGFR Inhibitor 1st gen 3||Tarceva (erlotinib) is a first-generation EGFR inhibitor that blocks EGFR signaling, potentially leading to inhibition of tumor growth (PMID: 30069756). Tarceva (erlotinib) is FDA approved for use in patients with non-small cell lung cancer harboring EGFR exon 19 deletions and/or EGFR L858R, and in combination with gemcitabine for patients with locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic pancreatic cancer (FDA.gov).|
|Paclitaxel||Taxol||7-Epipaclitaxel||Antimicrotubule Agent 14 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).|
