Danny Rischin, MD, MBBS, FRACP, director, division of cancer medicine, and head, department of medical oncology, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Australia, discusses an ongoing phase III trial for patients with metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma or recurrent disease after progressing on frontline chemotherapy.
