Dr Gil Morgan from OncoAlert gives his oncology highlights from social media for the week of August 15th - 21st, 2022.

Alerts this week cover papers from Kidney Cancer, Journal of Clinical Oncology and Nature Medicine.

Dr Morgan expresses the great results of downsizing with chemo for early-stage rectal cancer. Results of CO28 trial suggest that induction chemo followed by minimally invasive surgery may offer a much-desired organ-sparing option for patients with early-stage rectal cancer.

He also reminds everybody of Jill Feldman’s discussion addressing the question ‘how are biomarkers influencing patient advocacy?’ on August 23rd with AACR.
