Management of Cutaneous and Extracutaneous Side Effects of Smoothened Inhibitor Therapy for Advanced Basal Cell Carcinoma. Clinical cancer research : an official journal of the American Association for Cancer Research Mohan, S. V., Chang, A. L. 2015; 21 (12): 2677-83


Smoothened inhibitors represent the first class of targeted drugs approved for use in advanced and metastatic basal cell carcinoma.

We also highlight possible mechanisms for these adverse events and current management strategies.
