Pancreatic Cancer and Drugs

Written by wordsmith.

Effect of Drugs on Pancreatic Cancer

Certain pharmaceutical drugs, such as erlotinib, can “target” cancer cells to block their growth. Usually, targeted drug therapy is used in combination with chemotherapy. Different target drugs are currently under study in research trials. These include vaccines, and angiogenesis inhibitors that prevent cancer from growing new blood cells.

Usually, targeted drugs are applied in clinical trials with participants in the latter stages of pancreatic cancer.
