List of Agents Available Under CTEP Collaborative Agreements for Clinical and Non-clinical Studies

Clinical Use

The clinical research supply of the CTEP agents, below, is largely for the National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) and the Experimental Therapeutics Clinical Trials Network (ETCTN), however investigators from certain NCI-designated Cancer Centers not affiliated with these networks may submit a LOI. If approved, investigators may receive full ETCTN support for the clinical trial. Non-ETCTN NCI Cancer Centers will also be able to compete for administrative supplements to enroll patients on select ETCTN phase 2 trials through the NCI Early Drug Development Opportunity Program (EDDOP). Click here for more information about the EDDOP.

NOTE: It is very important for anyone thinking of developing an LOI to first communicate with the appropriate drug monitor, as listed on the table, before initiating work on the LOI.

Non-Clinical Use

The CTEP agents, below, are available to all requestors after NCI receives the industry supplier’s approval for the proposed research. For requests other than agents from AstraZeneca, please use the Non-clinical Request Form found at: Non-clinical Request. For AstraZeneca agents please use the AZ Non-clinical Request Form. For any other questions, please email

OTHER AGENTS: If the agent you are looking for is not on this list please also check the NCI Formulary.

NOTE: this list can be sorted by clicking on any of the header names. For an Excel Spreadsheet of these agents please click here.

CAUTION: The table is not a 'live' document. It is updated about 4 times per year, so should never be assumed to contain the most recent changes. Please feel free to contact the appropriate drug monitor, as listed on the table to confirm accuracy.
