Dr Axel Grothey - Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, Rochester, USA

Dr Grothey talks with ecancer at ESMO GI 2017 about what the future holds for GI oncologists. He states that he believes that the way that oncologists interact with patients will change to allow patients to have access to medical information and their care throughout the entire process. Dr Grothey believes that there will be a device created to transmit information, continuously, between patient and medical professional, allowing treatments to be modified early if needed.

Dr Grothey goes on to discuss immunotherapies and how he thinks there will be inroads made into treating cancers that are not currently immunogenic. He believes that immunotherapy will be used as first line treatment.

Dr Grothey then talks about how he believes that diagnostic tools will be developed to allow circulating markers to be more evident through the diagnostic process.
