Targeted Treatments

About targeted treatments

Targeted treatments, also known as personalised or biological therapies, are a group of drugs which are used to treat cancer. These drugs are different to chemotherapy and work by disrupting the way in which cancer cells grow and divide.

There are several types of targeted treatment / personalised therapies available to you as a patient of Nova Healthcare, most commonly:

  • Angiogenesis inhibitors: prevent cancers from making new blood vessels. Without new blood vessels, the cancer cannot grow
  • Cancer Growth Inhibitors: block certain chemical signals within cells, which slows down or stops the growth of the cancer
  • Monoclonal Antibodies: attach themselves to specific proteins on the surface of cancer cells to prevent them from growing
