2018 ASCO Annual Meeting
Ryan D. Nipp, MD, of Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses study findings on electronic symptom monitoring vs usual care to assess whether the intervention, tested in hospitalized patients with advanced cancer, can improve symptom burden and reduce the risk of readmission (Abstract 10005).
Elizabeth A. Mittendorf, MD, PhD, of Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center, and Lisa A. Carey, MD, of the University of North Carolina, discuss the impact of new phase III findings on chemoendocrine treatment vs endocrine treatment alone in hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative, node-negative breast cancer (Abstract LBA1).
Lee S. Schwartzberg, MD, of West Cancer Center, reports on the progress of the ACCC Immuno-Oncology Institute to speed adoption of immunotherapeutics in community practices.
Daniel J. George, MD, of Duke University, discusses findings from a multicenter study of black and white patients with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer treated with abiraterone acetate and prednisone (Abstract LBA5009).
Toni K. Choueiri, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Laurence Albiges, MD, PhD, of Gustave Roussy, discuss the implications of this study’s potentially practice-changing finding that nephrectomy is no longer the standard of care for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (Abstract LBA3).
Bruce E. Johnson, MD, of the Lowe Center for Thoracic Oncology and ASCO’s outgoing President, talks with Monica M. Bertagnolli, MD, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the incoming President, about what has been achieved in the past year and what lies ahead.
