Targeted therapies for breast and gynaecological cancers

Targeted or biological therapies are drugs that change the way that cells interact or communicate with each other.  There are three different types:


Monoclonal antibodies

These are laboratory created antibodies that are designed to recognise the protein on the surface of a cancer cell and lock onto it, stopping the cell from growing and destroying it.  They can also be used to directly deliver a cancer drug or radioactive substance to a cancer cell or to stimulate the body's immune system into destroying cancer cells.  Examples of monoclonal antibodies are Avastin (Bevacizumab), used to treat metastatic breast cancer, advanced ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer and peritoneal cancer, and Herceptin (Trastuzumab) used in the treatment of early and metastatic breast cancer.


Cancer growth inhibitors

Cancer growth inhibitors interfere with the chemical communication process that cancer cells use to grow and divide.  Tyverb (Lapatinib) is a cancer growth inhibitor used to treat women and men with advanced or metastatic breast cancer.


Angiogenesis inhibitors

These drugs interfere with the development of blood vessels in a tumour, depriving it of the oxygen and nutrients it needs to survive.  As well as being a monoclonal antibody, Avastin is also an angiogenesis inhibitor.
