Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Precision medicine in the form of molecularly-targeted therapies are now the frontline in the treatment of cancer, buoyed by tangible improvements in treatment tolerability and outcomes (Teicher in Mol Cancer Ther, pp. 7–40, 2005 [1]). Nonetheless, drug resistance against targeted therapies almost inevitably arises eventually after several treatment cycles.
