It occurred to me after several such events this year that virtual meetings create a very different pattern for spectators from live events where we all dash from one hall to another trying to optimise the viewing experience and catch as many key talks as we can.

Gems from the ASCO Poster Halls

Many people will no doubt be eager to listen to the various oral presentations of phase 3 data come Friday morning, while the poor posters may well languish until some undetermined time later, so why not take a step back and highlight some of the early work in developmental therapeutics ahead of time?

In the final part of our ASCO Preview series, we offer our independent take and candid commentary on ten abstracts in developmental therapeutics to watch out for.

A word of warning – we don’t take a particular perspective through the lens of rose tinted glasses, so not all the analyses are positive and there are some firm words against some of the selections regarding continued development or the researchers conclusions/recommendations.

Some of these are agents in early development, some are biomarkers or even emerging trends, but all are intriguing in their own unique fashion.
