Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) clinicians’ clinical oncology results to be presented at ASCO’s annual meeting in 2021

SEATTLE – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) today announced presentations from the organization’s clinicians to be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2021 Annual Meeting from June 4 to 8, 2021.

SCCA clinicians have contributed to studies of several types of cancer spanning the entire continuum of cancer care – from prevention to diagnosis to treatment. Presentations will highlight results from Phase 1 trials, CAR T therapy, breast cancer, bladder cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and hematologic cancers. In addition, there are numerous studies on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer diagnosis, clinical care and clinical trials in oncology. SCCA clinical researchers have also contributed to new findings related to genetic profiling, prostate needle biopsy pathology, and precision therapy for salivary gland cancer.

“The SCCA is a leader in groundbreaking clinical trials turning scientific discoveries into exciting new treatments that often change the way cancer care is delivered,” said Nancy Davidson, MD, president and executive director of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and former president of ASCO. “The work presented by our physician-researchers at ASCO 2021 once again demonstrates these ongoing efforts to improve the way patients are treated and advance multidisciplinary cancer care. ”
