Adding the anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody tislelizumab to chemotherapy in the first-line treatment of PD-1-positive advanced gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma appears to produce significant and clinically meaningful improvements in survival outcomes while having an acceptable safety profile, according to interim data from the phase III RATIONALE 305 trial.
Treatment with single fraction radiation therapy (RT) results in lesser hepatic pain in most patients with end-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver metastases, according to a study presented at the recent ASCO Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium (ASCO GI 2023).

In men with localized prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy and treated with 5α-reductase inhibitor (5-ARI), preoperative levels of circulating 11-oxygenated androgens can indicate either disease progression or improved survival, a recent study has found.
