Abstract

Each year, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) independently reviews advances in clinical cancer research, and identifies those that will have the greatest impact on patient care. This report, Clinical Cancer Advances 2008: Major Research Advances in Cancer Treatment, Screening, and Prevention, highlights 31 of the most significant advances during last year, including 12 that the editors consider to be major advances. Although these and many other research advances are making a real difference in patient care, cancer continues to take a tremendous toll-more than 500,000 people in the United States will die as a result of cancer this year. In this report, ASCO recommends two strategies for translating our growing basic science knowledge into new treatments for patients: increasing investment in cancer research and expanding patient participation in clinical trials.
