This edition: Targeting Gist
GIST - Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor is a rare and dangerous form of cancer that affects the digestive tract and other structures in the abdominal area. But unlike many other cancers there are targeted treatments that work very well for some patients with GIST. In this program we meet doctors who are at the forefront of cancer research, see how they are implementing these targeted treatments and hear about what's on the horizon. We will also meet patients who were diagnosed with GIST who have benefitted from the latest research and hear their stories.
