Targeted cancer therapies market is growing due to the increasing incidences of cancers such as breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal and among others.
Targeted cancer therapies are drugs which block the growth and proliferation of cancer by interfering with specific molecules such as DNA or proteins, which are involved in the growth or expansion of cancerous cells. Targeted cancer therapies differ in several ways from standard chemotherapy. Standard chemotherapy act on all rapidly dividing cancerous cells as well as normal cells, while targeted cancer therapies act on specific molecular targets that are associated with cancer.
