|Ado-trastuzumab emtansine||Kadcyla||T-DM1|trastuzumab emtansine||HER2 (ERBB2) Antibody 36||Kadcyla (ado-trastuzumab emtansine) is an antibody drug conjugate combined of the ERBB2 (HER2) monoclonal antibody, trastuzumab, and an anti-tubulin agent, DM1, which results in tumor cell cytotoxicity (PMID: 24887180). Kadcyla (ado-trastuzumab emtansine) is FDA approved for metastatic ERBB2 (HER2)-positive (overexpression or gene amplification) breast cancer patients who have previously received trastuzumab and/or taxane, and for the adjuvant treatment of patients with ERBB2 (HER2)-positive early breast cancer who have residual invasive disease after taxane and trastuzumab-based treatment (FDA.gov).|
|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).|
