New colorectal cancer targeted therapy combination shows pro
New SWOG study results show significantly better outcomes for patients with a treatment-resistant form of metastatic colorectal cancer when the BRAF inhibitor vemurafenib is added to a standard treatment. The findings, for the first time, point at an effective treatment for this deadly type of cancer.

SWOG investigator Dr. Scott Kopetz will present the research Saturday, Jan. 21 at the 2107 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium in San Francisco. The symposium showcases the latest science and is sponsored by the field's leading specialty societies: the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Institute, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), and the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO).
