Targeted therapies (biological therapies) for secondary cancer in the bone
Targeted therapies, sometimes called biological therapies are substances that target the differences between cancer cells and normal cells.
Targeted therapies are often used to treat kidney cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, including the bones. However, they are also sometimes used to treat other cancers that have spread, such as prostate, breast and lung cancer. Targeted therapies include a range of different drugs.
They may be given either as tablets, into a vein (intravenously) or by injection under the skin (subcutaneously). Side effects vary depending on the drug used. Your hospital team will be able to give you more information about specific drugs.
