What is Targeted Therapy?

Targeted Therapy is a type of cancer treatment that specifically targets cancer cells while minimizing damage to normal cells in the body. It works by blocking the growth and spread of cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. This therapy is based on the unique characteristics of each patient’s cancer and utilizes advanced medications and technology to precisely attack cancer cells.

The side effects of targeted therapy may vary depending on the type of cancer being treated and the medications used. However, some common side effects may include skin irritation, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. These side effects are usually manageable, and our team at Unique Hospital Cancer Centre will work with you to minimize any discomfort.

Targeted therapy works by targeting specific molecules or pathways that play a role in the growth and spread of cancer cells. By targeting these specific areas, the therapy can disrupt the cancer cells’ ability to grow and divide, ultimately leading to their destruction. This therapy also has the potential to boost the body’s immune system to fight against cancer cells.

At Unique Hospital Cancer Centre, our team of expert physicians, led by Dr. Ashish Gupta, will closely monitor your treatment and manage any potential side effects. We may also recommend complementary and alternative therapies to help alleviate any discomfort or side effects.

There are several types of targeted therapy, including monoclonal antibodies, small-molecule drugs, and immune checkpoint inhibitors. Each type targets a specific aspect of cancer cell growth or spread and may be used alone or in combination with other treatments.

Targeted Therapy may be used as a primary treatment or in combination with other treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. Our team at Unique Hospital Cancer Centre will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and type of cancer.
