Gatenby is remarkable. More about his research and adaptive therapy for cancer

After searching the internet and reading about Gatenbys research trials, I am really interested in adaptive therapies. He does mention how this can be applied to not only chemo but others therapies like hormonal. So, if cancer cells become resistant to let's say anastrozole, would using the adaptive approach have slowed this down or stopped it altogether? I don't understand why it is taking the industry so long to take this research seriously and apply it in practice
