Chemotherapy - Platinum
||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).
PDGFR Inhibitor (Pan)
VEGFR Inhibitor (Pan)
||Motesanib (AMG 706) is a multi-kinase inhibitor, which inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGFR), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGFR), Kit, and Ret receptors, thereby inhibiting angiogenesis and inducing tumor regression (PMID: 16951187, PMID: 21422803).
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).
