Predictions in Cancer for 2013

What will be the big news in your field in 2013? The availability of new drugs, perhaps? Long awaited phase III data which could set research on a new tack? Or the spiralling costs that will effectively block patients’ access to new treatment approaches? In this month’s EJC News Focus, Helen Saul asks Mary O’Brien, Richard Marais, Roger Stupp, Manuela Schmidinger and David Cameron what they expect to be the key issues in their field in the coming year.
