Targeted Cancer Therapeutics

Targeted therapy is the foundation of precision medicine. Targeted cancer therapeutics target proteins that control how cancer cells grow, divide, and spread.

Targeted therapies attack specific areas or substances in cancer cells or can detect and inhibit certain kinds of messages sent inside a cancer cell that tell it to grow.

TriStar’s repository of tumor samples representing a variety of histological & molecular sub-types, pre and post treatment, can be interrogated via IHC, NGS, RNAseq and other platforms to detect the presence and prevalence of known and novel cancer targets.
