Targeted Therapy Improves Survival Rates among Patients with Head and Neck Cancer

Physicians in Europe are eager for novel therapies for head and neck cancer, as five-year survival rates among patients have remained low at 33.0 per cent for decades. Some of the new drugs that fall under targeted therapies have eliminated the shortcomings of traditional chemotherapy treatment by predominantly acting only on the cancer cells and leaving the healthy cells intact. These drugs achieve this precision by interfering with specific molecules involved in carcinogenesis and tumour growth. "An example of targeted therapy is Erbitux (cetuximab), a first in class IgG1 monoclonal antibody (mAb), specifically targeting the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)," says the analyst of this research service. "mAbs are highly specific therapeutics and have improved side effects profiles."
