Therapy Name Tazemetostat
Synonyms
Therapy Description

Tazemetostat (EPZ-6438) binds to and inhibits EZH2, resulting in decreased tri-methylation of H3K27, and potentially leading to inhibition of cell proliferation and tumor growth (PMID: 23620515).

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Tazemetostat Tazverik EPZ6438|E-7438|EPZ-6438 EZH2 inhibitor 18 Tazverik (tazemetostat) binds to and inhibits EZH2, resulting in decreased tri-methylation of H3K27, and potentially leading to inhibition of cell proliferation and tumor growth (PMID: 23620515). Tazverik (tazemetostat) is FDA approved for use in patients aged 16 years and older with metastatic or locally advanced epithelioid sarcoma not eligible for complete resection, and in adult patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (R/R FL) harboring an EZH2 mutation after 2 prior therapies, and in patients with R/R FL without treatment options (FDA.gov).
