Abstract

SUMMARY In the era of molecular scientific discovery, there is a continuing gap between our growing scientific knowledge and its utility at the bedside. This phenomenon probably occurs more frequently in colorectal cancer than in other cancer streams, with thousands of scientific studies having produced only a handful of molecular interventions. This review examines our current practices of molecular profiling in colorectal cancer and the scientific research that may impact on this area in the future.
