Authored by LRG Data Analyst Jerry Call*

Cover of LRG Science April 2020
LRG Science endeavors to be a respected source of timely, science-based information built on real world data designed for those whose focus is to increase patient survival from Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) and other cancers.

In this issue of LRG Science, the relationship between overall survival (OS) and access to treatments after imatinib failure is explored. In 2019, the LRG published this research in Clinical Sarcoma Research and this issue included commentary from experts.

Commentary is welcome.
