Date:6/22/2012

DENVER The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) is hosting the 5th Latin American Conference on Lung Cancer July 25 to 27 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Nearly 1,000 medical professionals will gather to discuss the latest lung cancer research and treatment.

Lung cancer kills more than 1.5 million people each year worldwide. It is also among the most challenging cancers to treat. Yet, there is excitement and hope, thanks to new advances which are improving the chances of better outcomes.

The Latin American Conference will highlight the latest in lung cancer research including: prevention, early detection, staging, CT screening, mesothelioma, non-small cell lung cancer, tobacco use and supportive care. Experts from around the globe will be on hand to comment on all of these topics.

Lung cancer is often associated with the use of tobacco. Prior to the official kick-off of the conference, the Latin American Tobacco Control Forum will be held Wednesday, July 25. There will be an outstanding number of highly experienced experts in tobacco control, who will discuss the advances and challenges specific to Latin America.
