NCI Almanac Data: Combo Scores
[PMID:28446463]
Manufacturer: Developmental Therapeutics Program, NCI/NIH
Platform: Sulforhodamine assay
Molecular Target: null
Platform Description: The selected drug pair represents the efficacy of the drug combination when tested against NCI's standard set of 60 cancer cell lines. Generally, a higher score value indicates the drug combination slowed the growth of a particular type of cancer more effectively than what would be expected, based on the performance of the drugs when tested separately.
