As researchers have learned more about the changes in non small cell lung cancer nsclc cells that help them grow they have developed newer drugs to specifically target these changes targeted drugs work differently from standard chemotherapy chemo drugs they sometimes work when chemo drugs don . Targeted cancer therapies are drugs or other substances that block the growth and spread of cancer by interfering with specific molecules molecular targets that are involved in the growth progression and spread of cancertargeted cancer therapies are sometimes called molecularly targeted drugs molecularly targeted therapies precision medicines or similar names. Targeted therapy of lung cancer refers to using agents specifically designed to selectively target molecular pathways responsible for or that substantially drive the malignant phenotype of lung cancer cells and as a consequence of this relative selectivity cause fewer toxic effects on normal cells. Targeted molecular therapy is a type of personalized medical therapy designed to treat cancer by interrupting unique molecular abnormalities that drive cancer growth the drugs used in targeted therapy are designed to interfere with a specific biochemical pathway central to the development growth and spread of that particular cancer. Targeted therapy is a newer type of cancer treatment that uses drugs or other substances to more precisely identify and attack cancer cells targeted therapy is a growing part of the treatment for many types of cancer find out more about it here
