|Therapy Name||Lapatinib + Paclitaxel + Trastuzumab|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Lapatinib||Tykerb||Lapatinib Ditosylate||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 60 HER2 Inhibitor 40||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).|
|Trastuzumab||Herceptin||Anti HER2||HER2 (ERBB2) Antibody 64||Herceptin (trastuzumab) is a monoclonal antibody, which binds ERBB2 (HER2) to induce tumor cellular cytotoxicity (PMID: 17611206). Herceptin (trastuzumab) is FDA approved for HER2-overexpressing (or amplification) breast cancer, gastric adenocarcinoma, and gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma (FDA.gov).|

|PIK3CA wild-type||Her2-receptor positive breast cancer||sensitive||Lapatinib + Paclitaxel + Trastuzumab||Phase II||Actionable||In a Phase II trial, the combination of Taxol (paclitaxel) plus Herceptin (trastuzumab) and Tykerb (lapatinib) resulted in a higher pathologic complete remission rate in ERBB2 (HER2)-receptor positive breast cancer patients with PIK3CA wild-type compared to those harboring a PIK3CA mutation (PMID: 26245675).||26245675|
