Molecular Targets: Unlocking the Secrets of Cellular Function and Disease

Dr. Rajakrishnan Jansi

Molecular target-based therapies have revolutionized the field of medicine by enabling the development of highly specific and effective treatments for various diseases. This approach involves identifying key molecules, such as proteins or nucleic acids that play crucial roles in disease progression or are essential for the survival of pathogens. By selectively targeting these molecules with drugs or other therapeutic agents, it is possible to disrupt disease pathways, inhibit pathological processes, or eradicate infectious agents. This abstract provides an overview of molecular target-based therapies, including the identification of molecular targets, the design and development of targeted therapies, and the challenges associated with this approach. It highlights the significant impact of molecular target-based therapies on the treatment of cancer, infectious diseases, and other medical conditions. Furthermore, it discusses emerging trends and future prospects in the field, emphasizing the potential of personalized medicine and the development of novel molecular targets for improved therapeutic outcomes.
