|Azacitidine||Vidaza||azacytidine|CC-486|5-azacytidine|5-AC|U-18496|Onureg||DNMT inhibitor (Pan) 5||Vidaza (azacitidine) is a cytidine analog that incorporates into DNA and RNA and binds to DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs), resulting in DNMT degradation and decreased DNA methylation, and leading to increased tumor cell death (PMID: 28159832, PMID: 28067760). Vidaza (azacitidine) is FDA-approved for use in patients with some subtypes of myelodysplastic syndrome and Onureg (azacitidine) is FDA approved for use in continued treatment of acute myeloid leukemia(FDA.gov).|
|Selumetinib||Koselugo||AZD6244|ARRY-142886||MEK inhibitor (Pan) 23 MEK1 Inhibitor 25 MEK2 Inhibitor 23||Koselugo (selumetinib) inhibits mitogen-activated protein kinase kinases (MEK or MAPK/ERK kinases) 1 and 2, which may prevent the activation of MEK1/2-dependent effector proteins and transcription factors, reducing cellular proliferation in various cancers (PMID: 27467210). Koselugo (selumetinib) is FDA approved for use in pediatric patients of 2 years or older with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) who have symptomatic, inoperable plexiform neurofibromas (FDA.gov).|
