Cutting-Edge Cancer Care: New Approaches to Tricky Tumors

UCSF specialists report from the front lines of treatment for neuroendocrine tumors, pancreatic cancer and sarcomas. This three-part video covers:
  • An update on classifying NETs, who’s a candidate for resection, the latest drugs for NETs (including peptide receptor radionuclide therapy) and how to time treatment
  • Why pancreatic cancer is common and aggressive, a look at the FOLFIRINOX regimen, whether “chemo holidays” are safe, and new guidelines on germline testing and tumor analysis
  • Why multidisciplinary collaboration is essential to treating sarcomas, how surgical creativity can preserve function, and a look at using a 3D model to plan a complicated surgery
