Shah says as more treatments become available, oncologists need to consider the order in which they give treatments to patients with gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer.

Manish A. Shah, MD, medical oncologist, Bartlett Associate Professor of GI Oncology, Weill Cornell Medical Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, discusses how BBI608 might fit into the treatment paradigm for gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer. Shah says as more treatments become available, oncologists need to consider the order in which they give patients treatments. He adds that not all gastric cancers are the same, so identifying which cancers would be best treated by a PD-1 inhibitor and which would be best treated by a stem cell inhibitor is crucial.
