||ISIS-STAT3rx (AZD9150) is an antisense oligonucleotide that inhibits translation of STAT3, which is often activated by receptor tyrosine kinases including FGFR, thereby preventing cell proliferation (NCI Drug Dictionary, PMID: 23935373).
Chemotherapy - Platinum
||Platinol (cisplatin) is a platinum based chemotherapeutic, which is FDA approved for bladder, ovarian, and testicular cancers (NCI Drug Dictionary).
Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor
||Imfinzi (durvalumab) is a monoclonal antibody that binds to and inhibits PD-L1 (CD274), potentially resulting in increased immune response to tumors (PMID: 25943534, 28214651). Imfinzi (durvalumab) is FDA approved for use in patients with urothelial carcinoma and unresectable, stage III non-small cell lung cancer (FDA.gov).
Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite
||Gemzar (gemcitabine) is converted in cells to difluorodeoxycytidine di- and triphosphate (dFdCDP, dFdCTP), which act to inhibit ribonucleoside reductase and as a deoxynucleotide analog respectively, resulting in DNA strand termination and apoptosis (NCI Drug Dictionary).
