Cancer drug targets are the drugs that target cancer causing cells by preventing the cells to grow and develop. Many new anti- neoplastic agents are developed in the process of targeting malignant cells in the body.
Drug target as a nucleic acid or a protein (e.g. an enzyme, a receptor) whose activity can be modified by a drug. The drug can be a small-molecular-weight chemical compound or a biological, such as an antibody or a recombinant protein.
The drug target should have been shown to be effective/mechanistically involved in the disease by relevant in vitro or in vivo models. Cancer drug targets alter the metabolism of cancer causing cells by inhibiting the spread of the disease.
