|Therapy Name||Carboplatin + Paclitaxel + Pembrolizumab + Pemetrexed|
|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).|
|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).|
|Pembrolizumab||Keytruda||MK-3475||Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor 95 PD-L1/PD-1 antibody 63||Keytruda (pembrolizumab) is an antibody against PD-1 that activates T-cell mediated anti-tumor immune response (PMID: 25977344). Keytruda (pembrolizumab) is approved in melanoma, SCLC, HNSCC, classical Hodgkin Lymphoma, primary mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma, urothelial carcinoma, HCC, Merkel cell carcinoma, NMIBC, MSI-H or dMMR solid tumors, PD-L1 expressing NSCLC, gastric and GEJ adenocarcinoma, squamous esophageal carcinoma, and cervical cancer, in combination with pemetrexed and platinum in non-squamous NSCLC with no EGFR or ALK mutations, with carboplatin and paclitaxel/nab-paclitaxel in squamous NSCLC, with axitinib for RCC, and with Lenvatinib in endometrial carcinoma that is not MSI-H or dMMR (FDA.gov).|
|Pemetrexed||Alimta||LY231514||Chemotherapy - Antimetabolite 11||Alimta (pemetrexed) is an antifolate, which inhibits thymidylate synthase (NCI Drug Dictionary).|
