Selected videos of the 54th ASCO Congress
1-5 June 2018, Chicago, USA
The Editors of the 54th ASCO Congress Medicom Conference Report, Dr Erlinda Gordon and Dr Sant Chawla, congratulate ASCO with this year’s theme “Delivering Discoveries: Expanding the Reach of Precision Medicine” for another successful and well-attended meeting.
The highlights of the ASCO2018 annual meeting are presented in the ASCO2018 Medicom Conference Report, and include advances in screening and biomarker development for numerous types of cancer. A major theme in the report is the mixed results on whether to use monotherapy or combination therapy. Another highlight is the successful use of CAR T-cell therapy in blood cancers.
The ASCO2018 Medicom Conference Report also includes two Editor selected ASCO2018 Congress videos per chapter.
