|Mon, 13 Aug||Breast Cancer Research, Clinical Oncology, Cancer Immunology & Vaccines Session|
Clinical oncology consists of three primary disciplines: medical oncology (the treatment of cancer with medicine, including chemotherapy), surgical oncology (the surgical aspects of cancer including biopsy, staging, and surgical resection of tumors), and radiation oncology (the treatment of cancer with therapeutic radiation). The topics include under clinical oncology session are epidemiology and cancer biology, diagnosis, including histopathology, cytology and tumour markers, familial cancers and genetic testing, cancer treatment and management, professional issues, such as doctor patient communication and ethics and common cancer types.Every day the tumor cells develop in our body. Most of these cells are detected and immediately destroyed by the immune system. Some, however, escape this defense mechanism or manage. Breast Cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK but, thanks to research, more than two thirds of women now survive the disease for 20 years or more. Our work underpins today’s treatments and has helped save many thousands of lives. Breast Cancer session is designed to provide state-of- the-art information on the experimental biology, etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and therapy of breast cancer and premalignant breast disease, to an international audience of academic and private physicians and researchers. All about breast cancer, including symptoms, risk factors, causes, and preventing breast cancer. Screening and diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and breast cancer, including mammograms, ultrasound and biopsy. Treatment information includes surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, radiotherapy, biological therapy, research, and clinical trials. Coping with breast cancer information includes managing after surgery, coping with menopausal symptoms, and breast cancer in pregnancy. Lastly, a section about breast cancer that has spread, including treatments and coping with secondary breast cancer. Most women with breast cancer will have some type of surgery to remove the tumor. Depending on the type of breast cancer and how advanced it is, you may need other types of treatment as well, either before or after surgery, or sometimes both. Surgery is less likely to be a main part of the treatment for more advanced breast cancers.
|Tue, 14 Aug||Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery & Therapy, Cancer Stem Cell Therapy, Surgical Oncology Session|
Anti-cancer drug development is a major area of research. Around the world, tremendous resources are being invested in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Europe and North America. Discovery and development of anticancer agents are the key focus of several pharmaceutical companies as well as non-profit government and non-government organizations, like the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in the United States, the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), and the British Cancer Research Campaign(CRC). Monitoring of response to newer anti-cancer drugs has undergone an evolution from structural imaging modalities to targeting functional metabolic activity at cellular level to better define responsive and non-responsive cancerous tissue. Current challenges of anticancer drug development include the significant time and cost involvement, and the low success rates. These have led to increasing efforts of the pharmaceutical industry toward increasing the effectiveness of the drug discovery and development process and to minimize failure of drug candidates at later stages of development. These efforts include development of high throughput preclinical screening methods and biological assays with greater specificity and predictability. The evolving paradigms of anticancer drug development demonstrate the increasing influence of scientific advancements in diverse fields and increased understanding of the disease process. These trends are expected to continue with the hope for more effective and less toxic therapeutic options. This session will provide an overview of currently used chemotherapeutics and will explore the impact of the molecular understanding of cancer on modern drug discovery, drug development and cancer therapy.
|Wed, 15 Aug||Radiation, Surgical and Medical oncology Cancer Screening & Diagnosis, Cancer Genetics Session|
Oncology is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and radiation oncology is the treatment of cancer and other diseases with radiation. For the procedure, radiation in various forms is used to kill cancer cells by preventing them from multiplying cells. Therapeutic radiology can be used to cure or control cancer or to relieve some of the symptoms associated with cancer. Therapeutic radiology treatment can be used alone or in combination with other types of treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy (the use of anticancer drugs to treat cancerous cells), and / or other treatments. The level and type of radiation used will be determined by the radiation oncologist based on the type of cancer, tumor location, and the sensitivity of the surrounding tissues. An oncologist oversees a patient’s care from the cancer diagnosis throughout the course of the disease. The oncologist’s role includes the following: Explaining the cancer diagnosis and stage to the patient, Discussing all relevant treatment options and the oncologist’s recommendations, Delivering high-quality, compassionate care and Helping the patient manage cancer-related pain and other symptoms or treatment side effects. A person with cancer is often treated by a team of oncologists who specialize in different areas of oncology. This approach is helpful because cancer treatment frequently involves a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
|Wed, 15 Aug||Organ Specific Cancers and Effects Innovations in prevention and screening Session|
This session covers the biology of all organ Specific Cancers, With its heterogenetic ability, Cancer has a diversified nature in relation to the organ specificity. This section encompasses study of cancer development in different organs and their transition among the organs. The primary focus is on heterogeneity, origin, metastasis, angiogenesis and organ specified mechanisms in cancer cells. Targeting cancer metabolism has the potential to lead to major advances in tumor therapy. Numerous promising metabolic drug targets have been identified. Yet, it has emerged that there is no singular metabolism that defines the oncogenic state of the cell. Rather, the metabolism of cancer cells is a function of the requirements of a tumor. Hence, the tissue of origin, the epigenetic drivers, the aberrant signalling, and the microenvironment all together define these metabolic requirements. ose from the list below to get information and resources for a specific cancer topic. It covers the different type of cancers such as Adrenal Cancer, Anal Cancer, Bile Duct Cancer, Bladder Cancer, Bone Cancer, Brain/CNS Tumors In Adults, Brain/CNS Tumors In Children, Breast Cancer, Cancer in Adolescents, Cancer in Children, Castleman Disease, Cervical Cancer, Colon/Rectum Cancer, Endometrial Cancer, Esophagus Cancer, Ewing Family Of Tumors, Eye Cancer, Gallbladder Cancer, Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumors, Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST), Hodgkin Disease, Kaposi Sarcoma, Kidney Cancer, Laryngeal and Hypopharyngeal Cancer, Leukemia, Leukemia - Acute Lymphocytic (ALL) in Adults, Leukemia - Acute Myeloid (AML), Leukemia - Chronic Lymphocytic (CLL), Leukemia - Chronic Myeloid (CML), Liver Cancer, Lung Cancer, Lymphoma, Lymphoma of the Skin, Malignant Mesothelioma, Multiple Myeloma, Myelodysplastic Syndrome, Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer, Nasopharyngeal Cancer, Neuroblastoma, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma In Children, Oral Cavity and Oropharyngeal Cancer, Osteosarcoma, Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Penile Cancer, Pituitary Tumors, Prostate Cancer, Retinoblastoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma, Salivary Gland Cancer, Skin Cancer, Small Intestine Cancer, Stomach Cancer, Testicular Cancer, Thymus Cancer, Thyroid Cancer, Uterine Sarcoma and Vaginal Cancer, etc.
