|Therapy Name||Everolimus + Tazemetostat|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|Everolimus||Afinitor||RAD001|Zortress||mTORC1 Inhibitor 8||Afinitor (everolimus) binds to FKBP-12 and allosterically inhibits mTOR, leading to decreased mTORC1 signaling and potentially resulting in decreased tumor cell growth (PMID: 17766661, PMID: 28400999). Afinitor (everolimus) is FDA approved for use in neuroendocrine tumors of pancreatic, lung or gastrointestinal tract origin, advanced renal cell carcinoma, in adult and pediatric patients aged 1 year and older with tuberous sclerosis complex who have subependymal giant cell astrocytoma, and in combination with Aromasin (exemestane) in hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer (FDA.gov).|
|Tazemetostat||Tazverik||EPZ6438|E-7438|EPZ-6438||EZH2 inhibitor 18||Tazverik (tazemetostat) binds to and inhibits EZH2, resulting in decreased tri-methylation of H3K27, and potentially leading to inhibition of cell proliferation and tumor growth (PMID: 23620515). Tazverik (tazemetostat) is FDA approved for use in patients aged 16 years and older with metastatic or locally advanced epithelioid sarcoma not eligible for complete resection, and in adult patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (R/R FL) harboring an EZH2 mutation after 2 prior therapies, and in patients with R/R FL without treatment options (FDA.gov).|
