Here it is: #LateBreakingAbstract at #ASTRO20 SS19 available to view now! Early analysis of trial (NCT03340974) using high-dose SBRT with avasopasem (GC4419) in #PancreaticCancer #PancSM #ASTRO20 Thread👇
This trial tried to address an unmet need for a specific group of #PancreaticCancer #PancSM patients whose disease had not progressed but remained unresectable after chemotherapy. #ASTRO20 @ACKoongMDPhD
Patients would be enrolled on the trial after finishing a minimum of 3 months of standard-of-care chemotherapy. They would receive SBRT with Avasopasem or a placebo control just prior to each SBRT treatment. #ASTRO20

One day late, but wanted to summarize #PancreaticCancer #PancSM talks from yesterday’s #ASTRO20 session on hypofractionation in GI Cancers before spill the beans on my study... 1/9
@MikeChoungMD gave a great talk on the @UMiami experience with #MRLinac for #PancreaticCancer #PancSM. This is a great technology that allows #RadOnc to replan the treatment each day based on the anatomy of the nearby bowel. #ASTRO20 2/9
In this study on #MRLinac, they showed that they can safely deliver ablative doses (about 50Gy/5 fractions) with less than 2% acute and late GI tox. #ASTRO20 3/9

Starting off with Radiation Oncology Economics by Amar Rewari, MD in the LIVE ARRO Session. Great info for now and also to reference later! #ASTRO20
Physician Work (small portion), Practice Expense (high/majority), and Liability Insurance make up cost of each code. #ASTRO20
Conversion Factor 2020 36 but will be decreased down to 32 for 2021 to achieve budget neutrality, so care will be reimbursed for less next year.
