Dr Gianni Bisogno - University Hospital of Padova, Padova, Italy

Dr Bisogno speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the results from a randomised phase III clinical trial of 6 months maintenance chemotherapy for children with the rare disease rhabdomyosarcoma.

For those receiving the low dose chemotherapy following initial treatments, 5 year overall survival improved from 73.7% to 86.5%, which is the first improvement in this indication for more than 30 years.

For more detail, watch Dr Bisogno present the data in a press conference here, or read our news coverage here.
