How can failures be avoided or at least be reduced in our target-based strategies in oncology? The answer is not necessarily immediately obvious. 22 It is also clear from this exercise that selection of tractable pharmacologically validated targets is critical. Extracellular targets, such as receptors, transporters, exoenzymes, cell surface antigens, proteoglycans, and extracellular matrix components, are much more likely to be attractive than intracellular molecular targets. Being fully validated is more important than being new.

The synthetic lethality model can also be extended by replacing a gene deletion with a second drug (Table V). This could obviously be a powerful strategy for identifying novel drug combinations in an unbiased manner (see below). Molecular biology has provided a long list of human oncogenes and tumor suppressors. A number of groups have established isogenic pairs of normal and malignant cell lines suitable for screening of compound libraries or plant, soil, and marine extracts, which are complex mixtures of Natural Products, for agents that selectively inhibit cells with cancer-relevant genetic alterations in a high throughput manner.
