Targeted Therapies are used to attack specific proteins involved in signaling pathways related to the Carcinogenesis process. In Subject 09, we describe therapies such as Monoclonal Antibodies and Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors directed at membrane receptors and particular intracellular proteins that play a role in DNA repair mechanisms, the Cell Cycle, Cell proliferation, Cell Death, Angiogenesis and Immune System, as well as how they can effectively readjust Carcinogenic mechanisms.
What will you learn?
With this course you
will learn about:
Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs).
Inhibitors of MAPK pathway and JAK/STAT pathway.
Inhibitors of other proteins involved in cell survival and proliferation (CDKs, PARP, mTORC1 and SMO), as well as, proteins involved in cell invasion (COX2).
Therapies targeting the immune system: cytokines analogs, bifunctional monoclonal antibodies, and immune checkpoints inhibitors.
Hormonal Targeted Therapies: inhibition of androgens and estrogens production and targeting of androgen and estrogen receptor.
