Cancer Types – Targets & Therapy

Targeted cancer therapies are drugs or targeting specific genes or proteins which are found in cancer cells or in cells related to cancer growth, like blood vessel cells that block the growth and spread of cancer by interfering with specific molecules that are involved in the growth, progression, and spread of cancer. Molecularly targeted drugs or molecularly targeted therapies are sometimes come under Targeted cancer therapies. Many different targeted therapy types for cancer treatment are in available which are as follows.

Some targeted therapies like Cancer vaccines and gene therapy interfere with the growth of specific cancer cells are considered under targeted therapies. A candidate is determined whether a patient is for targeted therapy will have an appropriate target for a particular targeted therapy and will be treated. In case of CML: most patients have the BCR-ABL fusion gene and for other cancer types a patient’s tumor tissue must be tested to determine target is present or not. The use of a targeted therapy will be restricted to patients whose tumor has a specific gene mutation that codes for the target; patients who do not have the mutation will not be targeted.
