Targeted therapy is a use of drugs to stop or slow down the growth of the cancer; however, it is different than chemotherapy.
The following are types of targeted therapies:
- Monoclonal Therapy: monoclonal antibodies block the cancer. It works like a plastic plug in an electrical socket.
- Small-Molecule Drugs: stops cancer from multiplying and spreading. It stops tissue from around the tumor from growing blood cells.
- Hormone Therapy: stops the growth of hormone sensitive tumors.
