Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases involving dysregulated cell proliferation. Chemotherapeutic drugs have serious drawbacks of nonspecific toxicity and drug resistance. Tyrosine kinases are a significant class of enzymes of protein kinases. The four members of the trans-membrane family of tyrosine kinase receptors known as the human epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR), ErbB1/HER1, ErbB2/HER2/neu, ErbB3/HER3, and ErbB4/HER4, are overexpressed in many forms of cancer. These receptors are crucial for cell division, invasion, metastasis, angiogenesis, and uncontrolled activation of cancer cells. In this context, an attractive combination of anticancer drug targets is ErbB1 and ErbB2. Numerous cancer types exhibit overexpression of ErbB1 and ErbB2, which is linked to poor prognosis and causes resistance to ErbB1-targeted therapy. Further, it has been reported in recent years that the use of peptides as anticancer agents have the potential to circumvent the drawbacks of the currently used chemotherapeutic drugs. Among them, short peptides have several advantages when compared to small molecules. The present report reviews the importance of tyrosine kinases as targets for cancer, the role of peptides as therapeutic agents, and the investigations that have been carried out by earlier workers for targeting both ErbB1 and ErbB2 using therapeutic peptides.

Keywords: EGFR/HER1/ErbB1, HER2/ErbB2, Dual targeting, Therapeutic peptides, Anticancer drugs, Tyrosine kinases.
