Cancer genes and the pathways they control

  title={Cancer genes and the pathways they control},
  author={Bert Vogelstein and Kenneth W. Kinzler},
  journal={Nature Medicine},
The revolution in cancer research can be summed up in a single sentence: cancer is, in essence, a genetic disease. In the last decade, many important genes responsible for the genesis of various cancers have been discovered, their mutations precisely identified, and the pathways through which they act characterized. The purposes of this review are to highlight examples of progress in these areas, indicate where knowledge is scarce and point out fertile grounds for future investigation.
