Prof Manel Esteller – University of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Prof Manel Esteller talks to ecancer at EACR 22 in Barcelona, July 2012, about how all tumour types can be affected by gene modification.


It is important to understand that cancer is not only an accumulation of mutations, but genetic defects as well. In cancer, genetic information provides biomarkers that help determine diagnostic, prognostic and treatment effects; in addition to targets for new drugs.


Current developments in gene therapy include new techniques for genetic modification and de-modification, which show promise in leukaemia and sarcomas, as well as new interests in colorectal, breast and small cell lung cancer.
