Targeted therapeutic options for gastric cancer
Summary:
In this paper, a literature review on the treatment of gastric cancer is presented with emphasis on targeted therapy. Initially, the epidemiological data of the disease and its histological classification are reported. Then, the tools that contribute to the diagnosis of gastric cancer and the techniques to promote prevention are presented. Regarding the treatment of gastric cancer, reference is made to surgical resection, radiation, chemotherapy and immunotherapy. Each treatment option can be used either as monotherapy or in combination depending on the stage of the disease. Concerning targeted therapy, three key biomarkers (HER2, VEGF, PD-1/PD-L1) are examined and how they contribute to the progression of gastric cancer treatment. Finally, the challenges in gastric cancer treatment and future directions are discussed.
