Let's have a closer look 🧐at the PROSPECT trial after its presentation at #ASCO23 and publication in @NEJM #radonc #crcsm 1/n
First of all, the study team is to be congratulated for successful recruitment and completion of the study. Almost 1200 patients randomized - everyone who has led a multicenter trial can appreciate how challenging it can be to keep recruitment up over time.
The study enrolled patients with locally advanced rectal cancer that had to meet some specific inclusion criteria.
🔹Tumor located 5-12 cm from anal verge
🔹Sphincter sparing surgery possible at baseline
🔹Distance from MRF min. 3 mm
🔹T2N1 or T3N- or T3 N1

In May 2019, Dr. @rschilsky & I co-chaired the #AAADV19 Workshop Plenary Session "Decentralized #ClinicalTrials: The Future is Now." An incredible group of panelists from academia, industry, govt, & patient #advocacy 👇discussed the rationale, challenges, & opportunities of DCTs. Image

FOxTROT, the 1st ph 3 RCT of neoadjuvant chemo (NAC) in locally advanced colon cancer
We report that NAC is
✅deliverable and safe
✅led to statistically significant reduction in cancer recurrence than upfront surgery
A 🧵 (1/14)
2/14 The trial:
⭕️moved 6 weeks of chemo ahead of surgery, vs standard treatment.
⭕️Same total duration of chemo in each arm (pre-IDEA so total duration 24 weeks)
⭕️ primary endpoint 2 year RFS
1053 pts from 85 centres in 3 countries Image
🥁 Primary endpoint is met. 6 weeks of NAC led to:
✅ 28% relative reduction in 2 year recurrence
✅ 31% relative reduction in 3 year DFS

These data have strengthened since preliminary data presented and are final with mature follow up Image

Is there a role for Local Tx of the Primary Tumor for Patients with Metastatic Cancer?

🚫Many studies demonstrate no benefit.
📌We performed a MetaAnalysis to evaluate the average effect of Local Tx across various tumors.

A thread🧵#AMSM #PRIMETX…

Critics of Local Tx to the Primary Tumor

📌 Many providers think local control of the primary tumor in the setting of M1 dz is akin to “closing the barn door after the horse has bolted”
📌 Ian Tannock wrote a fantastic article on this back in 2000.

Supporters of Local Tx

📌Some support aggressive ablation of all sites due to the enhanced ability to detect occult disease with improved imaging technologies and 📉 toxicities with complete ablation.

Every Ethics 101 student wrestles with the trolley problem.

In this exercise, you are placed by train tracks watching a runaway trolley race towards 5 people who are going to be crushed unless you intercede.

If you pull a lever, the trolley will divert on a different track, where it is bound to kill one person.

In this situation, is it better to be passive or active?

Should you pull the lever or not?

While not quite as dramatic a scenario, a similarly freighted decision between inaction and intervention plays out in oncology clinics multiple times every day as doctors weigh the risks & benefits of adjuvant chemotherapy.

Yesterday at #TargetedChat we talked about a challenging case of a young individual with recurrent UNRESECTABLE colon cancer after adjuvant.

Here’s a 🧵 on the questions/answers. No one right away. What would you do differently?👇🏾Read/reply along #ColorectalCancerAwarenessMonth Image
It was interesting to see the distribution on the chemo backbone options.

👇🏾With the doublets and triplets discussion, a little bit of art 🖼 to the science 🧪

Have to see and individualize in each patient which tools 🛠 from the toolbox 🧰.

Welcome to #TumorBoardTuesday
Hello Everyone,

I’m Manju George, a stage 3b rectal cancer survivor
I was diagnosed in 2017 & I wasn’t yet 45 then

Are you excited to discuss #CtDNA testing?

Let's get started..
But first things 1st
Tell us about you
#PatientExperience #CRCSM
My tumor
-In the upper rectum near the recto-sigmoid
Clean CAP CT scan & MRI pelvis
CEA 1.0 at dx

Thank you @BilalMohammadMD @AmyOxentenkoMD for reigniting a convo ab #medtwitter #GITwitter, an important facet of the healthcare #SoMe landscape.

Let's review a few analyses we performed over the years on engagement + impact of GI #SoMe:
(Evidence to convince more to join?)

Q: Is there benefit to divisional social media presence for a healthcare dept/institution?

With @DrLorenGR @walterchanMD we demonstrated an ⬆️ in institutional social media presence predicted GI divisional #ranking improvement on @USNewsHealth @jmirpub
As mentioned, with @BrennanSpiegel @Doctor_V we created the GI hashtag ontology in 2016 to standardize GI discourse on Twitter with all GI societies/journals at the time, after a discussion w @subatomicdoc whose work in Heme/Onc inspired us. @symplur…
