Molecularly targeted therapy
A molecularly targeted therapy is designed to specifically modulate the function of a protein or other cellular component linked to a particular disease; for example, specific inhibitors of protein kinase involved in cell proliferation are used to treat some cancers. Such therapies may often be used with companion diagnostics to identify patients that are most likely to respond favourably.
