“Cancer could soon be cured if we find ways to treat patients with drugs that simultaneously target multiple hallmarks”. Evaluate the way in which three different cancer hallmarks or enabling characteristics (of your choice) can be successfully targeted with different drugs. Use specific evidence to argue whether you agree or disagree with this statement.

Could anyone help me with this question please? Its a 2500 essay, any pointers will be appreciated.

You could discuss checkpoint inhibitors which is targetting specific phases of the cell division cycle to stop the constant signalling for growth of new cells. Targetting angiogenesis to stop the formation of new blood vessels which would inhibit the growth of the tumor and stop nutrients being delivered to it.
