Therapy Description

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.

Drug Name Trade Name Synonyms Drug Classes Drug Description
PAC-1 VO-100 PAC-1 is a small molecule activator of procaspase 3, which occurs via inhibition of zinc ions, resulting in autoactivation and thus, may lead to apoptotis and anti-tumor activity (PMID: 19281821, PMID: 27297867).
Trametinib Mekinist GSK1120212 MEK inhibitor (Pan) 23 MEK1 Inhibitor 25 MEK2 Inhibitor 23 Mekinist (trametinib) inhibits MEK 1 and 2, which potentially leads to reduced tumor cell proliferation (PMID: 27956260). Mekinist (trametinib) is FDA approved for melanoma patients harboring BRAF V600E or BRAF V600K mutations, and in combination with Tafinlar (dabrafenib) for BRAF V600E/K-mutant melanoma, BRAF V600E- mutant non-small cell lung cancer, BRAF V600E-mutant anaplastic thyroid cancer, for adult and pediatric patients of 6 years or older with unresectable or metastatic solid tumors harboring BRAF V600E, and for pediatric patients of 1 year or older with low-grade glioma harboring BRAF V600E (FDA.gov).
Vemurafenib Zelboraf RO5185426|PLX4032 RAF Inhibitor (Pan) 27 Zelboraf (vemurafenib) inhibits BRAF V600E, wild-type BRAF, ARAF, and CRAF (PMID: 20179705), which may result in an inhibition of the MAPK signaling pathway resulting in a reduction of tumor cell proliferation (PMID: 20823850). Zelboraf (vemurafenib) is FDA approved for BRAF V600E-mutant melanoma and for BRAF V600-positive Erdheim-Chester disease (FDA.gov).

BRAF V600E melanoma sensitive PAC-1 + Trametinib + Vemurafenib Preclinical - Cell culture Actionable In a preclinical study, the addition of PAC-1 to Mekinist (trametinib) and Zelboraf (vemurafenib) led to greater levels of caspase-3 activity and apoptosis in melanoma cells harboring BRAF V600E when compared to Zelboraf (vemurafenib) and Mekinist (trametinib) treatment without PAC-1 (PMID: 27297867). 27297867
