Targeted Cancer Therapies 

Targeted therapy is a precise way to stop molecules that are growing cancer cells and affects cancer cells more than normal cells. Targeted therapy is different from traditional chemotherapy, which affects all fast growing cells. 

There are two main types of targeted therapy. 

  1. Small molecule drugs: small enough to enter cells 
  2. Monoclonal antibodies: too large to enter cells, but instead affect targets outside of cells or targets on cells' surface
