Targeted Therapy

Targeted therapies are drugs or other substances that block the growth and spread of cancer by interfering with specific molecules involved in tumor growth and progression. Because scientists often call these molecules “molecular targets," targeted cancer therapies are sometimes called “molecularly targeted drugs,” “molecularly  targeted therapies,” or other similar names. By focusing on molecular and cellular changes that are specific to cancer, targeted cancer therapies may be less harmful to normal cells and more effective than other types of treatment
