Prof Janusz Jankowski - Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Dublin, Republic of Ireland

Prof Jankowski speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about data from the ASPECT trial.

This was a phase III randomised trial in which Barrett’s oesophagus patients at a high risk of developing high-grade dysplasia or oesophageal cancer were treated with high dose proton pump inhibitors and aspirin, and Dr Jankowski estimates that this course of treatment prevented up to a quarter of cancers developing, and delayed its development by up to 2 years in other patients.

For more on these findings, watch him present the data in a press conference here, or read news coverage here.
