|Afatinib||Gilotrif||BIBW 2992|Giotrif||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 54 EGFR Inhibitor 2nd gen 4 HER inhibitor (Pan) 6||Gilotrif (afatinib) is a second-generation pan-Egfr inhibitor with activity against EGFR T790M and EGFR exon 19 and 21 deletions, and also inhibits ERBB2 (HER2), ERBB3 (HER3), ERBB4 (HER4) (PMID: 24435321, PMID: 25505694). Gilotrif (afatinib) is FDA approved for use in non-small cell lung cancer patients harboring non-resistant EGFR mutations, including exon 19 deletions, L858R, S768I, G719X, and L861Q, and for patients with metastatic squamous NSCLC (FDA.gov).|
|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).|
