New knowledge in the treatment of  particular neoplasms

Registrati a questo congresso

In the last few years new knowledge in biology and immunology have resulted

in progress in the treatment not only of big killer cancers but also in less

frequent tumors.

Patients suffering from cancer discussed in these meetings had a very

low survival until a few years ago, today the prospects of survival are

greatly improved thanks to new biological therapies and immunotherapy.

It appears necessary to review the therapeutic algorithms in order to offer

patients the best treatment possible sequence.

The chemotherapy is no longer the fundamental therapy but the biological and

immunotherapeutic drugs are getting results that were unthinkable a short time

ago.

These meetings are intended to review and discuss with the specialists the

progress achieved and to propose therapeutic algorithms useful in daily

practice.

This work should be a prerequisite to the construction of an interdisciplinary

network for pathology that will set the course of treatment of patients.
