SANCHEZ BOUZA, María de Jesús et al. A Look at Cancer from a Molecular Perspective. Rev. Finlay [online]. 2022, vol.12, n.2, pp.208-220.  Epub June 30, 2022. ISSN 2221-2434.

Cancer is a multifactorial disease that causes alterations in cell differentiation and a lack of control in the normal proliferation of cells, which leads to a loss of the structural and functional characteristics of cells in a tissue. This disease constitutes an important health problem due to its consequences from the individual, social and economic point of view. Molecular alterations are known to play an important role in the pathophysiological basis of cancer. This has intensified basic biomedical research in this field in recent years as a way to achieve better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these pathologies. This review presents an update on some aspects related to the molecular bases of cancer, which can provide useful theoretical tools for action in different scenarios of biological, medical and health sciences that improve the patient's life expectancy with an oncological condition.

Keywords : neoplasms; molecular biology.
