Prof Karim Fizazi - Cancer Medicine at the Institut Gustave Roussy, Villejuif, France

Dr Fizazi presents, at a press conference at ESMO 2016, the results of the AFFINITY trial of custirsen, a clusterin upstream inhibitor which had previous indications of improved clinical outcomes for castration resistant prostate cancer.

He describes the results from the AFFINITY trial as failing to reach significant difference in overall survival, and considers future paths for clusterin-targeted cancer therapy.

Dr Fizazi spoke with ecancer to discuss these results, and news coverage of this story is available here.
