Prof John Robertson - University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK

Prof Robertson speaks with ecancer at ESMO 2016 about the results of the phase III FALCON trial, which found fulvestrant significantly increased progression-free survival (PFS) in women with hormone-receptor-positive advanced breast cancer, and particularly those with less aggressive lower-volume disease.

He outlines the research that led to this trial, as discussed at SABCS 2014, and explains what these results mean for care going forwards

These results were also discussed by Dr Matthew Ellis, who spoke with ecancer here.
