One of the best cancer websites is managed by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). It contains incredibly useful information on everything a cancer patient needs to know, from cancer education, management, financial help, treatments and survivorship.
Each year, the American Society of Clinical Oncology conducts an independent review of advances in cancer research that have the greatest potential impact on patients’ lives. This year, Clinical Cancer Advances 2011 features 54 significant studies, including 12 that the report’s editors consider major advances.
This year’s Clinical Cancer Advances report also recaps the year’s most important cancer policy developments and ASCO policy initiatives that are likely to influence cancer care over the coming years. These include developments that could help to accelerate the pace of clinical cancer research progress and ensure access to quality cancer care for patients.
Anyone who is impacted by or interested in cancer research, treatments and care should look at this report.
