A targeted therapy can be used alone or in combination with other therapies like traditional or standard chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation therapy. Precision medicine or personalised medicine are terms used to describe targeted therapy. Small and large molecule (Monoclonal antibodies) medications are the two types of targeted therapies.

Frequently asked questions about Targeted Therapy

  • Small-molecule medications come in the form of pills or capsules that can be swallowed. Small-molecule medicines are utilised for targets that are inside cells because they are small enough to enter cells easily.
  • Monoclonal antibodies are normally injected into a vein with a needle. Monoclonal antibodies, commonly referred to as therapeutic antibodies, are proteins created in a laboratory. These proteins are made to bind to specific sites on cancerous cells. Some monoclonal antibodies are used to label cancer cells so that the immune system can see and eliminate them more easily. Other monoclonal antibodies directly inhibit the growth of cancer cells or lead them to self-destruct. Others deliver poisons to cancer cells.

The majority of targeted therapies work by interfering with specific proteins that aid tumour growth and spread throughout the body. They use a variety of methods to treat cancer. It can:

  • Assist the immune system in the destruction of cancer cells
  • Stop the spread of cancer cells
  • Stop signals that aid in the formation of blood vessels
  • To cancer cells, deliver cell-killing chemicals
  • Cause the demise of cancer cells
  • Deprive cancer of the hormones it needs to thrive

When a person suffers severe skin changes, the targeted therapy drug dose often needs to be lowered. During this time, expect to see your doctor a lot. If the rash does not clear up in about two weeks, the targeted medicine is usually discontinued until the skin alterations improve. With ongoing skin care, it can be restarted.
