Targeted Therapy

Cancer Science deals with the study of cancer cells causing tumours and the therapy is processed technically. The Cancer specific genes, proteins, or the tissue environment that contribute to cancer growth and survival are targeted by targeted therapy. It can be inferred from several studies that not all tumours have the same targets which reveals that same targeted treatment will not work for everyone.

For example, a gene called KRAS controls the growth and spread of a tumour. This gene mutation has been impacted with about 40% of colorectal cancers.
