Targeted Therapy Database

A systematic collection of the scientific knowledge regarding the development of targeted therapy for melanoma. Since data are gathered in a computationally compatible fashion, the database can be utilized for the identification of prevalent therapeutic hypotheses based on the available evidence and for ranking treatments based on the patient's molecular profile (drug ranking system). In particular the TTD can be queried for the following purposes:

  1. To provide both basic researchers and clinical investigators with an unprecedented synopsis of the available scientific literature on the development of targeted therapy for melanoma;

  2. To obtain summaries of the current evidence on the relationship between each single molecule (or set of molecules) and the efficacy (toxicity) of a given therapeutic agent (or set of therapeutic agents);

  3. To match the patient/cancer molecular profile with the available scientific evidence on the targeted therapy of melanoma, thus developing a drug ranking system for the personalized treatment of melanoma.

The second version of the Targeted Therapy Database (TTD) is now available, with more records on the personalized treatment of melanoma.
