Standard approaches to the treatment of malignancies include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. More recently, with understanding of these processes in molecular detail, biologics have become another important aspect of treatment. Conjugate toxins are biologics that combine a potent toxin with a peptide that will target cancer cells with minimal damage to normal tissues. This review will detail examples of these conjugate toxins and their targeted malignancies.
