Targeted drug therapy is mostly done in cancer which involves in targeting the cells that are associated with the disease in promoting growth, progression and the spread of the disease.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.
The therapy is done by identifying the targets which is very important in the treatment of disease. Targeted drugs attack the targets or infected cells as a procedure of therapy.
