Priscilla K. Brastianos, MD, of Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses genomic characterization of brain metastases and paired primary tumors, which could reveal potential therapeutic targets (Abstract 2905).
Mary K. Gospodarowicz, MD, of Princess Margaret Hospital, discusses the work of the Global Task Force on Radiotherapy for Cancer Control and its efforts to improve access to vital radiation treatment worldwide, especially in low- and middle-income countries.
Robert J. Motzer, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the results of this study, which could well change the treatment paradigm in patients with previously treated metastatic renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 3LBA).
Toni K. Choueiri, MD, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses results of the phase III METEOR trial in advanced renal cell carcinoma, which evaluated the efficacy of cabozantinib compared to everolimus in patients with disease progression after VEGFR-targeted therapy (Abstract 4LBA).
Brian I. Rini, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, discusses the results from a phase III study investigating a multipeptide cancer vaccine in patients receiving sunitinib as first-line therapy for advanced/metastatic renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 17LBA).
Martine Frouws, MD, PhD Candidate, of Leiden University Medical Centre discusses her study, which showed a significant increase in overall survival among patients with GI cancers who took aspirin compared to those who did not (Abstract 2306).
