Totally agree. Precision medicine is a very cool word but in reality just a few mutations can be targeted. Of a list of 29 possible driver mutations in lung cancer only 4 have approved drugs to target them. And for these 4 drugs, the response is initially good, on subset of patients, which means a time between month and maybe a couple of years without progression of disease. But cancer always fight back and shows resistance to targeted therapies. At the end, tumor grows again and without alternative unless you are elegible for some phase I clinical trials. We need to understand the mechanism of resistance and try to address the problem. And fund this research and alternate research. Precision medicine is not bad per se, it's good. But is not enough and right now offers real solution to few people. More research is needed.

Muchas gracias. Dinero recibido. Vamos a extender el plazo otros 30-40 días ya que he contactado con unos expertos en marketing que me ayudaran a conseguir el objetivo. Mas allá del dinero, que viene bien, el segundo objetivo es construir una red de contactos con gente afin.
