  • (a) administering a DNA damaging agent to the patient;

    (b) administering a therapeutically effective amount of a low molecular weight tyrosine kinase inhibitor to the patient, wherein the low molecular weight inhibitor binds intracellularly to inhibit the activity of more than one tyrosine kinase protein, and wherein the agent and the inhibitor act in combination by effecting a series of intracellular events to enhance cell death, thereby improving chemotherapeutic intervention.
