OUR STRATEGIES FOR THE FUTURE: WHAT TO DO.
Our goal is to promote the reduction of cancer incidence by implementing innovative strategies and providing a holistic approach that integrates education, genetics, precision oncology, molecular biomarkers, molecular epidemiology and personalized prevention.
This allows us to adapt our actions to individual characteristics and specific risk factors, with the aim of preventing cancer and improving people’s overall health.
Education plays a fundamental role in cancer prevention. Through targeted educational programs, we can inform the public about avoidable risk factors, promote healthy lifestyles and spread awareness about the importance of early diagnosis and prevention.
Genetics plays an increasingly important role in cancer prevention. Understanding the genes associated with the risk of developing certain forms of cancer can allow better assessment of individual risk and the implementation of personalized preventive measures.
Precision oncology represents an innovative approach to cancer prevention. Through the analysis of the molecular profiles of tumors, we can identify specific genetic alterations or biomarkers that allow us to select targeted and personalized therapies for patients, reducing the incidence of unwanted side effects and improving the effectiveness of treatments.
Molecular biomarkers are biological indicators that can be measured to identify specific alterations or conditions associated with cancer risk. The identification and use of molecular biomarkers can contribute to early diagnosis, monitoring of tumor progression and identification of high-risk subjects, allowing targeted preventive interventions.
Molecular epidemiology studies the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that influence the incidence of cancer at the molecular level. Understanding how these factors interact can provide a solid basis for developing targeted preventive strategies, identifying population subgroups at high risk and proposing personalized interventions.
Personalized prevention considers individual characteristics, such as family history, genetic profile and personal risk, to develop specific preventive strategies for each individual. This approach aims to identify personal risk factors and adopt tailored preventive measures, allowing the effectiveness of prevention strategies to be maximized.
