|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Cisplatin + Durvalumab + Paclitaxel|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Carboplatin||Paraplatin||CBDCA||Chemotherapy - Platinum 6||Paraplatin (carboplatin) is a second-generation platinum compound and is activated intracellularly to form reactive platinum complexes that cross link DNA with DNA and with proteins. This induces apoptosis and inhibits cell growth (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Cisplatin||Platinol||CDDP||Chemotherapy - Platinum 6||Platinol (cisplatin) is a platinum based chemotherapeutic, which is FDA approved for bladder, ovarian, and testicular cancers (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
|Durvalumab||Imfinzi||MEDI4736||Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor 94 PD-L1/PD-1 antibody 63||Imfinzi (durvalumab) is a monoclonal antibody that binds to and inhibits PD-L1 (CD274), potentially resulting in increased immune response to tumors (PMID: 25943534, PMID: 28214651). Imfinzi (durvalumab) is FDA approved for use in patients with urothelial carcinoma and unresectable, stage III non-small cell lung cancer, and in combination with etoposide and carboplatin or cisplatin in patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer (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).|
