research. Each tumor carries specific alterations that can be detected through molecular testing. Biomarkers are obtained by checking this information against the patient's own genetic traits to determine the "signature" or way the tumor manifests in his or her body. It is this identification that opens the door to targeted therapies.

The BBVA Foundation Tumor Biomarker Research Program pursues therapies tailored not only to the type of cancer but also the specific molecular characteristics of each patient's tumor. Among its objectives are the design of protocols for clinical trials that allow patients to benefit from newly discovered drugs earlier in the disease process, and the development of tools to measure individual patient's responses to targeted cancer drugs.

The idea is to have clinical trials where patients are recruited not for their type of tumor, as normally occurs, but for the type of molecular or genetic alteration linked to the tumor they are suffering.

Baselga is convinced that both new drug discovery and the optimization of existing treatments require "a close partnership with biotech and pharmaceutical companies in order to improve clinical trials and expedite development of new targeted drugs, so patients get the benefits as quickly as possible."
