Targeted therapeutics is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs to precisely 'target' cancer cells without affecting normal cells. Although targeted therapy is an effective treatment, many individuals prefer to use it in combination with other therapies such as traditional or standard chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation therapy. Developments in research for DNA changes and proteins that drive cancer are proving effective to design promising treatments that target such proteins. For different types of cancers come different types of drugs that individually target distinct cancer. However, tumors are tested to check the target, and provide therapy if the drugs are available. As traditional chemotherapy can damage normal cells while killing cancer cells, the targeted therapeutics market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period.
