Julien Taieb, MD, head of the gastroenterology and gastrointestinal oncology department of the Georges Pompidou European Hospital, Paris Descartes University, discusses primary tumor location in colorectal cancer (CRC).

There has been a big buzz around primary tumor location in CRC, with right-sided tumors being associated with poorer outcomes than left-sided tumors.

Additionally, the field is at a time of molecular classification, says Taieb, and finding predictive biomarkers is critical.
