Targeted therapies are treatments that target specific proteins or genes on or within cancer cells that help the cells to grow. Your doctor may also call these treatments tailored or biologicinfo-icon therapies. Targeted therapies may be used alone or with other targeted therapies, hormonal therapies or chemotherapyinfo-icon medicines.

Targeted therapies look for a specific feature of a cancer cellinfo-icon, attach to it and destroy it. Only cancers with that feature will respond to the therapyinfo-icon.
