INTRODUCTION Colorectal cancer (CRC) is currently one of the most lethal and prevalent tumors worldwide. Prognosis in the metastatic setting remains poor despite therapeutic advances. In addition to chemotherapy, new drugs have recently been developed targeting signaling pathways involved in tumor growth, differentiation and angiogenesis. Aflibercept , a(More)
INTRODUCTION Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide. Despite the introduction of several new drugs targeting the vascular endothelial growth factor or epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling pathways, survival and disease control in metastatic CRC remains poor.

Reactivation of latent imported infections has been periodically reported in migrant patients undergoing immunosuppression. We performed a prospective study at Vall d'Hebron University Hospital (Barcelona, Spain). Migrant patients over 16 years with the diagnosis of any oncohematologic disease were included. Patients were tested for soil-transmitted(More)
The MAPK cascade plays a crucial role in tumor cell proliferation and survival. Accumulating evidence suggests that mutations in the BRAF oncogene are not only associated with poor prognosis but also linked with less benefit when treated with anti-epidermal growth factor receptor antibodies in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Targeting this molecular(More)
