Investigational therapies target DNA repair to potentially treat cancer

Publish Date

Inhibiting the DNA repair pathways that certain cancer cells depend on to survive could be a new way to potentially treat cancer.

Damage to the DNA in cells is a constantly occurring event in the body, yet cells must identify and repair this damage to survive. To do so, cells use a critical process called the DNA Damage Response, or DDR. 

Our research teams are investigating new ways to potentially treat cancer by inhibiting the DDR pathways that certain cancer cells critically depend on to survive.
