|Therapy Name||Tazemetostat + Trametinib|
|Drug Name||Trade Name||Synonyms||Drug Classes||Drug Description|
|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).|
|Trametinib||Mekinist||GSK1120212||MEK inhibitor (Pan) 22 MEK1 Inhibitor 20 MEK2 Inhibitor 18||Mekinist (trametinib) inhibits MEK 1 and 2, which potentially leads to reduced tumor cell proliferation (PMID: 27956260). Mekinist (trametinib) is FDA approved for melanoma patients harboring BRAF V600E or BRAF V600K mutations, and in combination with Tafinlar (dabrafinib) for BRAF V600E/K-mutant melanoma, BRAF V600E- mutant non-small cell lung cancer, and BRAF V600E-mutant anaplastic thyroid cancer (FDA.gov).|
