|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Lapatinib + 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).|
|Lapatinib||Tykerb||Lapatinib Ditosylate||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 58 HER2 Inhibitor 39||Tykerb (lapatinib) reversibly inhibits ERBB2 (HER2) and EGFR, resulting in decreased downstream signaling and potentially leading to reduced tumor growth (PMID: 22477724). Tykerb (lapatinib) is FDA approved for ERBB2 (HER2)-positive (overexpressing) breast 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).|
