"This is important as it means that patients with resected stage 3 colon cancer should only receive FOLFOX. It also means that what works in metastatic colon cancer will not necessarily work in resected stage 3 colon cancer, a paradigm that we have used for many years," said Dr. Alberts, who is also medical director of Mayo Clinic Cancer Center Clinical Research Office.
