Madrid city center

Greetings from Vienna, Austria!  Fresh off a red eye… we’re en route to one European cancer conference in Germany, while writing about another one in Madrid.

This latest preview looks at some of the key IO studies that are either intriguing or have potentially interesting results that BSB readers have written in asking us about.

There are some targeted therapies thrown in too for good measure too, as there are some IO-targeted combos to look at, as well as IO-IO approaches.

What I want to accomplish in this latest preview is point out some elements of what we call ‘interestingness’ where people should be watch or wary of either jumping to conclusions or making comparisons across trials and arriving at assumptions that may not turn out to be valid. My best advice here is to always be sceptical and assume there’s no concordance and that way you won’t be caught unawares.  It’s easier said than done, though.

Indeed there were so many questions about ESMO that we needed two preview posts to cover many of the questions we received.

Part 2 should roll out tomorrow, wifi on the road permitting – stay tuned for more on ESMO17.
