Rutika Mehta, MD, MPH, of the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, discusses the 3-year regression-free and overall survival results from the JACCRO study, which compared the efficacy of S-1, an oral prodrug of fluorouracil, vs S-1 plus docetaxel after curative resection of stage III gastric cancer (Abstract 159).

Rocio Garcia-Carbonero, MD, of Hospital Universitario 12 De Octubre, discusses results of the phase II/III AXINET trial, which showed that axitinib plus long-acting release octreotide improved overall response compared with placebo and octreotide in patients with advanced grade 1 or 2 extrapancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. However, no significant improvement in progression-free survival was observed (Abstract 360).
