Dr Andrew Epstein, Prof Richard Schilsky and Dr Geertjan van Tienhoven comment on data, during a press conference at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, from the PREOPANC-1 trial.

This was a phase III randomised trial in which patients with resectable pancreatic cancer received 10 weeks of chemoradiotherapy prior to surgery, or immediate surgery alone.
