Targeted Therapy & Treatment For Cancer

Otherwise known as “molecularly targeted drugs”, “molecularly targeted therapies”, or “precision medicines”, targeted cancer therapy uses drugs or other substances to block the growth and spread of cancer by targeting specific molecules that are involved in the growth, progression, and spread of cancer.

A cornerstone of precision medicine, it is a form of medicine that uses information about a person’s genes and proteins to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.

Targeted therapies act on specific molecular targets that are associated with cancer, and are deliberately chosen or designed to interact with their target.

Most targeted therapies are either small-molecule drugs or monoclonal antibodies.
