Here are some other good ASCO News sources from MedAdNews:

PharmAviary provides a round up of the industry tweets of the week. Chris Truelove, editor in chief of Med Ad News and R&D Directions, scours the healthcare blogosphere to bring you a digestible summary of the big trends and issues that have everyone talking.
Updates from #ASCO, and back on the #socpharm 
Well, the American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting wrapped up this week, and there was a lot of news. A slew of companies announced clinical trial results, and there was some really good news for J&J’s Zytiga, which equaled bad news for Dendreon’s Provenge. The event also sparked discussions about how some cancer drug shortages have eased and proposed legislation to address shortages.Now that the Chicago convention center has emptied out, it’s back to the everyday grind. And the weekend awaits.
