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).
FGFR Inhibitor (Pan)
PDGFR Inhibitor (Pan)
VEGFR Inhibitor (Pan)
||Ofev (nintedanib) is a triple angiokinase inhibitor that acts by blocking VEGFR, FGFR, RET, and PDGFR, thereby preventing tumorigenesis (PMID: 24947258, PMID: 24561444). Ofev (nintedanib) is FDA approved for use in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (FDA.gov).
BCL2 Family Inhibitor
