This extract was published in association with the American Society of Clinical Oncology 2013 annual conference. Though the research behind it may have been excellent, your doctor cannot yet give much weight to it for a number of reasons, including:

  • It is only an extract. The full paper may reveal information important for your treatment.
  • The study has not yet had peer review - with doctors and researchers scrutinising the study closely for mistakes and limitations after it is published in a professional journal.
  •  Your doctor may already be aware of a limitations of the findings because of their wider reading.
