Targeted Therapy

Targeted therapy uses drugs that can kill just the kidney cancer cells in the body. This treatment blocks proteins or new blood vessels from growing which the cancer cells need to grow. This treatment is typically used for advanced (metastatic) disease. Targeted therapy has been shown to shrink kidney tumors or slow their growth.
