Cathy Eng, MD, professor of gastrointestinal medical oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses how the PRODIGE 7 trial, though negative, provided valuable evidence to the field for treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) with peritoneal carcinomatosis.
