How Does Targeted Therapy Work in Istanbul?
Targeted therapies are created to find and attack specific locations or substances in cancer cells, or can detect and block certain kinds of messages sent inside a cancer cell that tell it to grow.
The action of targeted drugs can work to:
Trigger your immune system to destroy the cancer cells
Block or switch off chemical signals that tell the cancer cell to grow and divide
Change proteins within the cancer cells so the cells die
Carry toxins to the cancer cells to kill them, but not normal cells
Which Cancers Are Treated with Targeted Therapy
For some types of cancer, most patients with that cancer will have a target for a certain drug, so they can be treated with that drug. But, most of the time, your tumor will need to be tested to see if it contains targets for which we have drugs.
Below are a few examples of targeted therapies
- Breast cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Lung cancer
Types of Targeted Therapy
Small-molecule drugs are small enough to enter cells easily, so they are used for targets that are inside cells. These drugs are generally taken as pills. Angiogenesis inhibitors are an example of this type of targeted therapy. These drugs keep tissue around the tumor from making blood vessels.
Monoclonal antibodies, also known as therapeutic antibodies, are proteins made in the lab. They are designed to bind to antigens that are generally more numerous on the surface of cancer cells than healthy cells.
Risks and Side Effects of Targeted Therapy
Targeted therapies carry some risks. The risks you may have depend on the type of targeted therapy you get and how your body reacts to the therapy.
The most common risks of targeted therapy include diarrhea and liver problems. Therapy drugs commonly cause skin problems, high blood pressure, mouth sore, the loss of hair color.

Difference Between Smart Drugs and Chemotherapy
Targeted therapy differs from chemotherapy in some ways:

- Smart drugs have the potential to provide effective treatment with fewer side effects than chemotherapy.
- Targeted therapies act on specific molecular targets that are associated with cancer, whereas most standard chemotherapies act on all rapidly dividing normal and cancerous cells.
