Expert Video - What is targeted therapy and personalized medicine for prostate cancer?
Dr. Jean Bonhomme, MD, MPH, an expert in men's health and founder of the National Black Men's Health Network, discusses targeted drug treatments and personalized medicine for prostate cancer. Targeted drug therapies attack specific markers or abnormalities in the prostate cancer cells. Dr. Bonhomme explains that prostate cancers between individuals are not always alike, as they can be more or less aggressive and have different markers or proteins on the outside of their cells. Talk to your doctor about the treatment options available for your specific type and stage of prostate cancer.
