Guillem Argilés, MD, department of Medical Oncology, Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, discusses the benefits of molecular subtyping in colorectal cancer.

Identifying new subtypes in colorectal cancer has made a significant impact on treatment options for colorectal cancer, Argilés says.

By identifying and targeting BRAF-mutations, patients with a previously poor prognosis are experiencing improved survival outcomes and response rates.

Additional subtyping and targeted therapies for those molecular subtypes is key to combating colorectal cancer, says Argilés.
