The development of more selective agents focused on targeted delivery of imaging probes and drugs to different tumor sites is the current trend in cancer diagnosis and therapies. Peptides are small amino acid sequences that can be isolated to bind to a predetermined target and are potentially capable of interfering with its function. These specific peptides isolated can inhibit individual signaling components, which are essential in cancer development and progression. Phage display is a… CONTINUE READING
