Targeted Therapies in the Treatment of Sarcomas.

Summary of "Targeted Therapies in the Treatment of Sarcomas."

About 50% of sarcomas have specific pathology-defining molecular alterations including mutations, fusion genes, and gene amplifications. Some of these alterations appear to be oncogenic drivers, and a subset can be utilized as targets for standard or experimental molecularly targeted agents in the clinic. In addition, immunotherapies may have a growing role in the treatment of sarcomas in the future.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapies using arts or directed at the senses.

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.

These evidence-based therapies to reduce symptoms associated with treatment of cancer.

Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).

A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds to IL-12 and IL-23 and is used as a DERMATOLOGIC AGENT in the treatment of patients with plaque PSORIASIS who have not responded to other therapies.
