|Nivolumab||Opdivo||MDX-1106|BMS-936558||Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor 153 PD-L1/PD-1 antibody 101||Opdivo (nivolumab) is an antibody that targets PD-1 (PDCD1), which results in increased T-cell activation and enhanced anti-tumor immune response (PMID: 28891423). Opdivo (nivolumab) is FDA approved for use as a monotherapy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) progressed on prior therapies, Hodgkin's lymphoma, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, urothelial carcinoma, esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, resected esophageal or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer, as a monotherapy or in combination with Yervoy (ipilimumab) in patients with melanoma, renal cell carcinoma, microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or mismatch repair deficient (dMMR) colorectal cancer (including patients 12 years or older), and hepatocellular carcinoma, in combination with Yervoy (ipilimumab) as first-line therapy in patients with PD-L1-positive (>=1%) metastatic NSCLC without EGFR or ALK alterations, in combination with Yervoy (ipilimumab) and platinum-based chemotherapy as first-line therapy in patients with metastatic or recurrent NSCLC without EGFR or ALK alterations, in combination with platinum doublet chemotherapy as neoadjuvant treatment for patients with resectable NSCLC, in combination with Cabometyx (cabozantinib) in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma, and in combination with fluoropyrimidine- and platinum-containing chemotherapy in patients with advanced or metastatic gastric cancer, gastroesophageal junction cancer, and esophageal adenocarcinoma (FDA.gov).|
|Valproic acid||Stavzor||Depacon|Valproate Sodium|Depakene||HDAC Inhibitor 42||Valproic acid inhibits HDAC activity, potentially resulting in decreased angiogenesis, increased tumor cell differentiation, and reduced tumor growth (PMID: 11742974, PMID: 14978230).
