Chemotherapy - Platinum
||Platinol (cisplatin) is a platinum based chemotherapeutic, which is FDA approved for bladder, ovarian, and testicular cancers (NCI Drug Dictionary).
||Afinitor (everolimus) binds to FKBP-12 and allosterically inhibits mTOR, leading to decreased mTORC1 signaling and potentially resulting in decreased tumor cell growth (PMID: 17766661, PMID: 28400999). Afinitor (everolimus) is FDA approved for use in neuroendocrine tumors of pancreatic, lung or gastrointestinal tract origin, advanced renal cell carcinoma, and in combination with Aromasin (exemestane) in hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer (FDA.gov).
BCL2 Family Inhibitor
||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).
