One of the highlights of the recent American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting was a plenary session updating the results of the ongoing BATTLE trial at MD Anderson in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
The more scientific readers will want to check out the academic paper and commentaries published in Cancer Discovery, (see below) or listen to the complimentary AACR webcast of the plenary talk including Dr Hong’s Reverse Migration Strategy, but I realised that not everyone is familiar with, or understands the background, to this ground breaking study.
