Chemotherapy - Platinum
||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).
BCL2 Family Inhibitor
||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).
||Farydak (panobinostat) is an HDAC inhibitor, which induces cell-cycle arrest and decreases growth of tumor cells (PMID: 18349321, PMID: 19671764, PMID: 27802904). Farydak (panobinostat) is FDA approved, in combination with Velcade (Bortezomib) and dexamethasone, for multiple myeloma (FDA.gov).
