Description

Chairs: M.S. Aapro, CH  -  J. Gligorov, FR


The understanding of cancer biology and  development of specific  immunological and "targeted" treatments is revolutionizing cancer treatment. To optimize the use of these therapeutic advances there is a clear need to define the disease of the patient more precisely.

This event will try to find answers to questions such as which parameters are of importance for the evaluation of patient prognosis and prediction of efficacy of the treatment. The Faculty will explain what can be asked from new methods, what do they bring today and what will they bring tomorrow.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Update the knowledge on the implications for practice and clinical research (tools to be used, tools still in research, areas where no tools are yet available)
Understand epigenetics and genomics research and their impact on cancer prognosis and therapy response (prediction).




 
The Board of ESO and Chairs of the Conference are with all their compassion near to the family and friends of a wonderful person, a great
 physician, John Fitzpatrick who passed away May 14. John will be remembered by us as THE champion of the older prostate cancer patients. 
 He defended their right for state of the art treatments with passion and science.
