Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitudes…and DABGA
I write today not from the files of the Jimmy Buffet musical collection, nor from a Caribbean Margaritaville-esque cabana, as the reference might suggest (for the unfamiliar, I have been humming his song “Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude…for about 2 weeks now) but rather as a dispatch on the latest development in clinical trials in prostate cancer. The topic: Data from the Latitude study that was presented at ASCO by Karim Fizazi and simultaneously published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
