Abstract Resistance to molecularly targeted therapies can result from genomic alterations in the tumor cells that reactivate oncogenic signaling. Less is known of tumor cell-extrinsic mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies. Two recent studies have identified HGF as a soluble factor capable of mediating resistance to BRAF and HER2 inhibitors in a paracrine manner. These new findings suggest an important role for the tumor microenvironment in mediating resistance to molecularly targeted therapies.
