Novel therapies - these treatments are also called "targeted therapies" because they target individual cancer cells and leave normal cells alone (unlike chemotherapy and radiation). Types of novel therapies include anti-angiogenesis therapy, which helps stop cancer cells from developing new blood vessels, and immunotherapy, which stimulates your own immune system to fight the cancer.
