Targeted Therapies Tutorials
Advances in Targeted Therapies
This animated tutorial for health professionals provides an overview of an emerging approach to cancer treatment called targeted therapies. The tutorial includes representative examples of the main types of targeted therapies and describes their mechanisms of action. It also explains how advanced research techniques, such as whole-genome profiling, contribute to the development of targeted therapies.
Targeted Therapies for Breast Cancer
This tutorial focuses on targeted therapies that have been and are being developed to treat breast cancer. It describes important molecular pathways in breast cancer cells and discusses new therapeutic agents, including small molecules and monoclonal antibodies, that target these pathways.
Targeted Therapies for Multiple Myeloma
This tutorial focuses on targeted therapies for multiple myeloma, a cancer in which abnormal plasma cells, called myeloma cells, accumulate in the bone marrow. Advances in the understanding of molecular pathways that are active in multiple myeloma cells have led to the development of new therapeutic agents, particularly small molecules, that target these pathways.
Targeted Therapies for Lymphoma
This tutorial focuses on targeted therapies for lymphoma, a cancer that begins in cells of the immune system called lymphocytes. These therapies—particularly monoclonal antibodies but also small molecules—target a number of different molecules and pathways that are active in lymphoma cells.
Targeted Therapies for Prostate Cancer
This tutorial focuses on targeted therapies for prostate cancer. These therapies include new hormone therapies, therapeutic vaccines, and new taxane combinations.
