La Vanguardia, Cope, Revista Genética, among other media, have each published an article about the latest study led by ICREA researchers Salvador Aznar Benitah and Fran Supek. The study warns that special care should be taken regarding epigenetic therapies since although their anti-tumour effect may be beneficial initially, they can trigger the development of more aggressive tumours later on.
