New Frontiers in Cancer Therapies: Focus on Transcription Factors, GTPases, Phosphatases and GPCRs, 2018-2030

Cancer Therapies continues to be one of the most active segments within the pharmaceutical industry. However, certain biological targets have long eluded drug development efforts. One such target is Ras family, which has been identified to play a critical role in oncogenesis. Scientific literature suggests that the RAS gene is mutated across about 30% of cancer types. Likewise, there are several other targets that have not yet been successfully drugged and researchers are making significant efforts to identify novel approaches to target them. Advances in drug discovery and development technologies / platforms have increased the likelihood of targeting a number of the aforementioned types of biological targets. As a result, novel product development opportunities have emerged and are likely to benefit both drug developers and investors alike.
