Dr Andrew Epstein and Prof Richard Schilsky comment on data, during a press conference at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, 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.
