|Gefitinib||Iressa||ZD1839||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 47 EGFR Inhibitor 1st gen 3||Iressa (gefitinib) is a first-generation EGFR inhibitor that binds EGFR and inhibits downstream signaling, potentially resulting in decreased growth of tumors with EGFR activation (PMID: 26980062, PMID: 25302162, PMID: 15284455). Iressa (gefitinib) is FDA approved for use in patients with non-small cell lung cancer harboring an EGFR exon 19 deletion or EGFR L858R (FDA.gov).|
|PLX4720||PLX-4720|PLX 4720||BRAF Inhibitor 20||PLX4720 is a 7-azaindole derivative and RAF kinase inhibitor with greater affinity for BRAF V600E than BRAF wild-type, which may induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis, and lead to tumor growth inhibition and regression (PMID: 18287029).|
