Annals of Oncology Award (JSMO 2016)
Annals of Oncology is a multidisciplinary journal on medical oncology, surgery, radiotherapy, paediatric oncology, basic research and management of patients with malignant diseases, and is the official journal of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and the Japanese Society of Medical Society (JSMO).
Each year, JSMO selects the most successful articles from Japanese authors, and chooses one to win the Annals of Oncology Award (JSMO 2016) . Read this year's winning paper by Dr Koichi Azuma:
