Matthew H.G. Katz, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses findings from the Alliance A021501 study, which showed that administering mFOLFIRINOX before surgery was associated with a favorable overall survival rate relative to historical data in patients with borderline resectable adenocarcinoma of the pancreas (Abstract 377).
