|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Gemcitabine + Paclitaxel + Pegylated liposomal-doxorubicin|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Carboplatin||Paraplatin||CBDCA||Chemotherapy - Platinum 6||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).|
|Gemcitabine||Gemzar||Difluorodeoxycytidine Hydrochlorothiazide||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).|
|Paclitaxel||Taxol||7-Epipaclitaxel||Antimicrotubule Agent 12 BCL2 Family Inhibitor 6||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).|
|Pegylated liposomal-doxorubicin||Doxil||ATI-0918|CAELYX||Chemotherapy - Anthracycline 11||Doxil (pegylated liposomal doxorubicin) is doxorubicin (intercalates into DNA, disrupting DNA replication) encapsulated, which within a liposome allows better penetration into tumors, decreases toxicity, and increases the period of effectiveness, and is FDA approved for ovarian cancer, AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma, and multiple myeloma (FDA.gov).|
