Targeted Therapies

Postby betsydoglover » Wed Apr 10, 2019 6:57 pm

Someone asked about targeted therapies - can't seem to find the post.

Here is a great link from NCI explaining this:
https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/tre ... fact-sheet

Avastin and Erbitux, for example, are targeted therapies.

Take care,
