Prof Georgina Long - University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia

Prof Long speaks with ecancer at ASCO 2017 about 5 year survival updates for BRAF melanoma patients treated with trametinib and dabrafenib.

She also reports on results from a trial of treating brain metastases with combined PD-1 and CTLA-4, reaching a PFS at 6 months of 47%.

Prof Long comments on the addition of radiotherapy to treat brain metastases, noting the work of Dr Ines Silva in establishing radionecrosis.
