Targeted Therapy

Targeted therapy is one of the types of treatment the Dream Team is using to develop new integrated approaches to KRAS-mutant lung cancer.

Targeted therapy is a kind of treatment that uses drugs to attack cancer cells. These drugs have been designed to impair, or target, the specific growth pathways of cancer cells that have undergone genetic changes. Targeted therapies work by preventing the uncontrollable growth of cancer cells.
