Researchers at Roswell Park Cancer Institute are formalizing their epigenetics program across dozens of disease research groups, with the goal of understanding what changes in the epigenome lead to cancer and identifying targeted, personalized ways to address these changes.
Igor Puzanov, MD, director, Early Phase Clinical Trials Program, chief of Melanoma, coleader, CCSG Experimental Therapeutics Program, professor of Oncology, Department of Medicine, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, discusses ways to manage patients with melanoma who may experience adverse events in response to treatment with immunotherapy.
Igor Puzanov, MD, director, Early Phase Clinical Trials Program, chief of Melanoma, coleader, CCSG Experimental Therapeutics Program, professor of Oncology, Department of Medicine, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, discusses an ongoing study exploring the optimal sequence of immunotherapy agents and targeted therapies for patients with melanoma.
The observed adverse events that have been associated with immunotherapy, especially immunotherapy combinations, have to be properly assessed against their clearly improved efficacy in patients with otherwise dismal prognosis from stage IV cancers.
A team of researchers take a retrospective look at the patterns of how, when, and to whom palliative options are presented to patients with metastatic breast cancer, as an approach for gaining insight on how to improve care for patients with late-stage, terminal cancers.
Kilian Salerno, MD, director of Breast Radiation and Soft Tissue/Melanoma Radiation, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, discusses hypofractionated radiotherapy for the treatment of patients with early-stage breast cancer.
James Mohler, MD, chair, Department of Urology, associate director, Translational Research, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, discusses the use of androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) for patients with prostate cancer and how the use is reflected in the NCCN guidelines.
Renuka Iyer, MD, associate professor of Oncology, co-director, Liver and Pancreas Tumor Center, section chief for Gastrointestinal Oncology, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, assistant professor of Medicine, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, State University of New York at Buffalo, discusses treatment of patients with lung neuroendocrine tumors.
