|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).|
|Capecitabine||Xeloda||R340||Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11||Xeloda (capecitabine) is an antimetabolite that when activated to 5-FU ultimately inhibits DNA synthesis and cell division (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Paclitaxel||Taxol||7-Epipaclitaxel||Antimicrotubule Agent 12 BCL2 Family Inhibitor 6||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).|
