“My main focus is to optimize the treatment for patients with GI malignancies. Clinical studies I coordinate usually compare approved substances against each other or evaluate them in untested sequences. Additionally, data and biomaterial from these studies are used for the development of clinical and molecular markers to further individualize our patients´ treatment. Arfolitixorin is a new substance which will hopefully increase the efficacy of the long established FOLFOX regimen without adding toxicity”.
