The Cold Shoulder of Cancer

Discover how scientists are combatting cancer’s unrelenting ability to resist treatment strategies


Understanding resistance to treatment

Several treatments are available to fight cancer, but cancer keeps fighting back. When scientists harnessed the immune system to target and kill cancer cells, cancer cells hid by downregulating certain markers on their cell surface. The story repeats for radiotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormone therapy. But scientists are conquering treatment resistant cancer in innovative ways, and the cancer-fighting arsenal continues to grow.

Download this infographic from Drug Discovery News to learn how cancer resists treatment and the many therapies developed by scientists to counter resistance.
