Previously, we didn't even have to discuss an option for adjuvant sutent. Now, with FDA approval, is it inappropriate or bad practice to not discuss? I believe, if u discuss the data, several pts may want to try sutent. Pts may not grasp DFS/OS issue.

Excellent work here. I skimmed through the paper and it puts forth a lot of ideas that are generally undervalued in hospitals and cancer centers. Eg; role of palliative care

I suspect guidelines may agree to put sutent as an option here.

It didn't say we were healthiest. It showed that we are now at par with the developed world in having significantly more non-communicable diseases affecting our people. Most of north India still have huge burden of communicable diseases.

ER Doc: “What brings you to the ER?” Patient: “I’m having a hypertensive crisis.” ER Doc: “Do you have any symptoms?” Patient: “No, I feel great. But I just read the new blood pressure guidelines.”

It just doesn't make any sense. Will medonc's prescribe it? If not, is it ethical not to do so given the FDA approval? If yes, is it the right thing to do?

Isn't it unbelievable the extent to which people have been radicalized? Dangerous times indeed.

Aju's right again. Low rates consistent across most cancers. Lower life expectancy doesn't explain as these are age-adjusted. Underdiagnosis prob only part of explanation

Age-adjusted rates for pancreatic cancer in India (based on Pop-based registry) ~ 2 per 100,000 persons (slightly higher for males vs females). Similar rates in USA, 12 per 100,000. Why lower rates? Likely due to lower life expectancy and fewer diagnosed.
