|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Bicalutamide||Casodex||Hormone - Anti-androgens 27||Casodex (bicalutamide) is an androgen-receptor antagonist that binds androgen receptors and inhibits androgen binding, therefore inhibits AR-dependent growth of tumor cells (PMID: 9428389). Casodex (bicalutamide) is approved, in combination with a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analog, for metastatic carcinoma of the prostate (FDA.gov).|
|Everolimus||Afinitor||RAD001|Zortress||mTORC1 Inhibitor 8||Afinitor (everolimus) binds to FKBP-12 and allosterically inhibits mTOR, leading to decreased mTORC1 signaling and potentially resulting in decreased tumor cell growth (PMID: 17766661, PMID: 28400999). Afinitor (everolimus) is FDA approved for use in neuroendocrine tumors of pancreatic, lung or gastrointestinal tract origin, advanced renal cell carcinoma, in adult and pediatric patients aged 1 year and older with tuberous sclerosis complex who have subependymal giant cell astrocytoma, and in combination with Aromasin (exemestane) in hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer (FDA.gov).|
