This includes the discovery of new therapeutic targets that exploit vulnerabilities of cancer cells, such as their dependence on oncometabolites (e.g., inhibition of mutant isocitrate dehydrogenases that produce D-2-hydroxyglutarate) (75, 76), as well as downstream targets of the oncometabolites (e.g., metabolic and epigenetic modulators) (7, 77).
