Dr Francois Quenet - Regional Cancer Institute, Montpellier, France

Dr Quenet speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the results from the PRODIGE 7 trial.

This was a phase III randomised trial looking at patients with stage IV non-metastatic colorectal cancer who received surgical treatment with or without heated oxaliplatin chemotherapy.

Dr Quenet describes the median overall survival at 64 months in both groups as equal, the time to disease recurrence as similar and that the addition of chemotherapy doubled the rate of complications.

For more on these results, watch him present the results in a press conference here, or read news coverage here.
