|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Bevacizumab||Avastin||VEGF Antibody 10 VEGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 32||Avastin (bevacizumab) is a monoclonal antibody that binds VEGF and inhibits binding to VEGFR, potentially resulting in decreased tumor growth (PMID: 15136787). Avastin (bevacizumab) is FDA approved for use in colorectal cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, glioblastoma, renal cell carcinoma, cervical carcinoma, and ovarian cancer, and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel in epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer (FDA.gov).|
|Erlotinib||Tarceva||CP358774||EGFR Inhibitor (Pan) 45 EGFR Inhibitor 1st gen 3||Tarceva (erlotinib) is a first-generation EGFR inhibitor, which is FDA approved for non-small cell lung carcinoma patients with EGFR exon 19 deletions and/or EGFR L858R and in combination with gemcitabine for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer (FDA.gov; PMID: 25302162).|
|Gemcitabine||Gemzar||Difluorodeoxycytidine Hydrochlorothiazide||Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11||Gemzar (gemcitabine) is converted in cells to difluorodeoxycytidine di- and triphosphate (dFdCDP, dFdCTP), which act to inhibit ribonucleoside reductase and as a deoxynucleotide analog respectively, resulting in DNA strand termination and apoptosis (NCI Drug Dictionary).|

|Unknown unknown||pancreatic adenocarcinoma||no benefit||Bevacizumab + Erlotinib + Gemcitabine||Phase III||Actionable||In a Phase III trial, treatment with the combination of Avastin (bevacizumab), Tarceva (erlotinib), and Gemzar (gemcitabine) did not result in a significant increase in OS in pancreatic adenocarcinoma patients compared to the combined treatment of Gemzar (gemcitabine), Tarceva (erlotinib), and placebo (PMID: 19307500).||19307500|
