2023 ASCO Highlights, Part 2: De-Escalation of Treatment

When almost everything in the cancer treatment world is focused on finding more, new, and better drugs, it is important to remember that de-escalation is just as important. How can we minimize the harms of a cancer drug without minimizing the benefits of the drug? This question is significant to the lives of breast cancer patients.

Our first installment of the 2023 ASCO Highlights discussed the CDK4/6 inhibitor de-escalation of the SONIA trial, and here, we explore two trials that investigate the de-escalation of chemotherapy: PHERGain and X-7/7.
