Chris Adams, one of Fight Colorectal Cancer’s research advocates, shares his thoughts about the results of a large breast cancer trial presented at the 2012 ASCO in Chicago, and aspects of the regulatory process. Thank YOU Chris!
On Sunday June 3 2012, at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting in Chicago, Dr Kimberly Blackwell from the Duke Cancer Institute, got on stage in front of over 10,000 doctors, researchers and worldwide media representatives to present initial results from the EMILIA trial.** The trial looked at the safety and effectiveness of a novel drug for a particular type of breast cancer. Despite its obvious applicability to breast cancer, the colorectal cancer community and the larger cancer community can learn a number of important things from EMILIA.
