|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Fluorouracil + Paclitaxel + Vandetanib|
|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).|
|Fluorouracil||Adrucil||5-FU||Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 14||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).|
|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).|
|Vandetanib||Caprelsa||ZD6474||ABL1 Inhibitor 7 EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 56 RET Inhibitor 48 SRC Inhibitor 31 VEGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 33||Caprelsa (vandetanib) is a multi-tyrosine kinase inhibitor with activity against VEGFR, EGFR, RET, SRC, and ABL1 kinases, potentially resulting in decreased tumor growth (PMID: 25031937, PMID: 25490448). Caprelsa (vandetanib) is FDA approved for use in medullary thyroid cancer (FDA.gov).|
