Cell heterogeneity in tumours: a barrier to cancer treatment Tumours are cell clusters that proliferate anarchically due to multiple alterations, especially at the genetic level. Recent progress in deciphering these alterations has led to the development of new targeted compounds to treat advanced cancers, which have permitted the development of some individualised cancer therapies. Unfortunately, the performance of these targeted therapies has not reached initial expec
