Hormone Therapy, Biotherapy and Targeted Therapy

Medical oncologists at Atrium Medical Center have extensive experience treating cancers with hormone therapy, targeted therapy and biotherapy.

Hormone Therapy

Some types of cancer, including breast, prostate, ovarian and endometrial cancers, need certain hormones in order to grow. Hormone therapy typically involves taking medications that block the activity or stop the production of these hormones.


Biological therapies (also called immunotherapy, biological response modifier therapy or biotherapy) use the body's immune system to fight cancer. Biological therapy is provided on the second floor of The Compton Center.

Targeted Therapy

Targeted cancer therapies use drugs or other substances to 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 that make them different from normal, healthy cells.
