|Therapy Name||Bendamustine + Gemcitabine + Nivolumab|
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).

|Bendamustine||Treanda||Ribomustin|SyB L-0501|SDX-105||Chemotherapy - Alkylating 14||Treanda (bendamustine) is an alkylating agent with unique mechanisms, resulting in increased DNA damage and base-excision DNA repair pathway induction, and potentially leading to decreased growth of tumors, including those resistant to other alkylating agents (PMID: 18172283, PMID: 19117340, PMID: 19224851). Treanda (bendamustine) is FDA approved for use in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (FDA.gov).|
|Gemcitabine||Gemzar||Difluorodeoxycytidine Hydrochlorothiazide|LY-188011||Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11||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).|
|Nivolumab||Opdivo||MDX-1106|BMS-936558||Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor 94 PD-L1/PD-1 antibody 63||Opdivo (nivolumab) is an antibody that targets PD-1 (PDCD1), which results in increased T-cell activation and enhanced anti-tumor immune response (PMID: 28891423). Opdivo (nivolumab) is FDA approved for use as a monotherapy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, urothelial carcinoma, and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, as a monotherapy or in combination with Yervoy (ipilimumab) in patients with melanoma, renal cell carcinoma, microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or mismatch repair deficient (dMMR) colorectal cancer (including patients 12 years or older), and hepatocellular carcinoma, in combination with Yervoy (ipilimumab) as first-line therapy in patients with PD-L1-positive (>=1%) metastatic non-small cell lung cancer without EGFR or ALK alterations, and in combination with Yervoy (ipilimumab) and platinum-based chemotherapy as first-line therapy in patients with metastatic or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer without EGFR or ALK alterations (FDA.gov).|
