Prof Richard Schilsky - Chief Medical Officer of the American Society of Oncology (ASCO)

Prof Schilsky speaks with ecancertv at WIN 2016 about changing understandings of cancer aetiology and treatment.

He discusses the growing application of immunotherapy, including checkpoint inhibitors, but cautions against a rush to adopt combination therapy without considering the adaptability and resistance development of tumour cells.

Prof Schilsky also comments on the SHIVA trial, as discussed by Dr Kurzrock, and the need for consistent communication and sharing of standards between clinics to advance personalised cancer care.
