Hormone Therapy, Biotherapy and Targeted Therapy

Medical oncologists at Miami Valley Hospital have experience treating cancers with hormone therapy, targeted therapy and biotherapy.

Hormone Therapy

Some cancers need hormones to grow. Hormone therapy keeps cancer cells from getting or using the hormones they need. It is a whole body therapy.


Biotherapy is another type of whole body therapy. It helps the immune system fight cancer.

Targeted Therapy

Targeted cancer therapies employ drugs or other substances that block the growth and spread of cancer by interfering with specific molecules involved in tumor growth and progression.  These therapies attack the cancer cells' inner workings, or programming, that makes them different from normal, healthy cells.
