  • Discuss strategies to individualize therapy for advanced and metastatic GC and GEJ cancers based on patient’s characteristics and biomarkers across lines of treatment.
  • Review the clinical evidence of the prognostic and predictive value of anatomical characteristics and biomarkers in guiding treatment selection for advanced and metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) across lines of therapy.
  • Review the biology of α-fetoprotein (AFP) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); explain the clinical significance of elevated serum AFP; and discuss AFP’s role as a prognostic and predictive biomarker in HCC.
