Affinity Therapy

  • Meir Wilchek


The chemicals or drugs used for cancer chemotherapy can reach and destroy cancer cells via the circulatory system. However, the chemical agents that are effective in destroying cancerous cells are usually toxic to normal cells also. Consequently, the slow progress in cancer chemotherapy can be attributed to this effect. This problem may be overcome by designing drugs which will be preferentially concentrated in the target tissue.
