New Data From ASCO's TAPUR Study to be Presented at 2020 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium

SAN FRANCISCO - Positive findings from the Targeted Agent and Profiling Utilization Registry (TAPUR) Study cohorts on the potential benefit of various molecularly targeted drugs in patients with advanced colorectal cancer will be presented at the 2020 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium, taking place January 23-25, 2020 at the Moscone West Building in San Francisco, California.

The TAPUR Study is the first clinical trial conducted by ASCO and aims to describe the performance (both safety and efficacy) of Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved, targeted anticancer drugs prescribed for treatment of patients with advanced cancer that has a potentially actionable genomic alteration.
