Prof Ramon De Mello - University of Algarve, Faro, Portugal

Dr De Mello speaks with ecancer at 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the changing landscape of care and treatment for oesophageal and upper gastric cancers.

He highlights the impact of immuno-oncology seen in gastric cancers, as in many other sites, and the identification of biomarkers to guide targeted therapies.

Among these, Dr De Mello notes the failure of combining ATM targeted therapy and olaparib in a phase III trial, the promising prospect of Tumour Mutational Burden as a prognostic marker, and that management of gastric/oesophageal malignancies is increasingly important in many parts of the world.
