Determine What is New in Breast Cancer Therapeutics with this Review of Clinical Developments in Current Pharmaceutical Pipelines

DUBLIN, Ireland — Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of “Drug Targets for Breast Cancer” to their offering.

Breast Cancer treatment is undergoing major transition. New targeted therapies are emerging that target cancer cells and spare healthy cells, resulting in reduced side effects. These developments have arisen following at least two decades of research into the molecular mechanisms that underlie cancer phenotypes.

This Drug Targets for Breast Cancer Report seeks to explore and systematically analyze both drug targets and associated therapeutics in current clinical development relating to breast cancer. Four major classes of breast cancer therapeutics are a particular focus – endocrine therapy, ‘innovative’ therapy, immunotherapy and chemotherapy. Several of the mainstream technologies utilized in breast cancer drug discovery are explored. Additionally, the therapeutic and market potential of each therapy type is investigated. This Report includes an up to date review of pipeline and market developments in the breast cancer therapeutics field.
