Detailed molecular characterization of tumours and tumor microenvironment is enabling the development of an increasing number of tailored therapies or drug combinations to improve outcomes and decrease toxicity. However, there are numerous challenges that need to be overcome while and before realizing the promise of molecularly targeted treatments against cancer. Three examples will be provided on how to face with and go beyond limitations.
