OncLive On Air® is a podcast from OncLive®, which provides oncology professionals with the resources and information they need to provide the best patient care. In both digital and print formats, OncLive® covers every angle of oncology practice, from new technology to treatment advances to important regulatory decisions.

In today’s episode, sponsored by Daiichi Sankyo, we had the pleasure of speaking with Howard S. Hochster, MD, FACP, a distinguished professor of medicine, associate director for clinical research, and director of Gastrointestinal Oncology at Rutgers Cancer Institute, and director of oncology research at RWJBarnabas Health, to discuss some of the main implications of research over the past year on the paradigm of gastric and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer.

In our exclusive interview, Hochster provided insight into the current gastric/GEJ landscape, spotlighting molecular testing approaches, the roles of chemoimmunotherapy combinations, ongoing research with biomarkers of response, and optimal treatment sequencing for patients with HER2-positive disease.
