|Alpha 2 Interferon||Roferon-A||Alferon|Interferon alfa 2a||Roferon-A (alpha 2 Interferon) is a recombinant form of human interferon alfa-2a, which binds to its receptor, activating anti-viral, anti-proliferative, anti-cancer, and immune modulating downstream effectors (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Bevacizumab||Avastin||VEGF Antibody 11 VEGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 32||Avastin (bevacizumab) is a monoclonal antibody that binds VEGF and inhibits binding to VEGFR, potentially resulting in decreased tumor growth (PMID: 15136787). Avastin (bevacizumab) is FDA approved for use in colorectal cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, glioblastoma, renal cell carcinoma, cervical carcinoma, and ovarian cancer, and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel in epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer (FDA.gov).|
