SBRT for men with prostate cancer results in shorter treatment times, low severe toxicity, and excellent cancer control rates.
Data from the Paris-based Molecular Screening for Cancer Treatment Optimization (MOSCATO) trial demonstrates that establishing molecular portraits improves survival for patients with advanced cancer by tailoring treatment to their genetic makeup. The findings were presented at the Molecular Analysis for Personalised Therapy conference.
One assay test reveals statistically lower levels of PD-L1 expression than the others.
Results show that hypofractionated radiation therapy may be a better treatment option for patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
