Abstract

The potential for less evasive cancer treatments presents the possibly for a great leap in the fight against cancer. The violent side effects of radiation and chemotherapy could be significantly reduced. Receptor-targeted therapy shows promise in the treatment of reproductive tissue cancers in both animals and human beings. Ensuing research will potentially encourage new knowledge and initiatives to further our understanding of how this therapy works.
