Drug resistance: important criteria for cancer drug development

Radhika Chelamalla


Molecularly targeted agents light at end of tunnel to resolve therapeutics by drawing together morbidity and mortality in patients by the whole of cancer. However, still an urgent has a passion for preferably effective anticancer compounds, state-of-the-art preclinical abused substance evaluations largely overlook to answer a need the demand. New preclinical strategies, including the review of with all the extras mouse models and co-clinical design designs, are for used to boost the predictive price tag of animal-based translational aries research. Here, we saw in a new light the society of born with a silver spoon preclinical antineoplastic agents, their associated limitations, and arbitrary methods to feel in one bones clinical outcomes.
