Dr Arafat speaks with ecancertv at ESMO 2016 about TRAIL, an apoptotic receptor - ligand pairing with modulated expression in cancer cells, which he believes could restore cell death to tumours.

He considers delivery systems by which TRAIL might be introduced, and its synergistic potential with chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
