AACR hosts cancer prevention meeting in Philadelphia
Date:10/6/2010

What: Based on what we know about smoking, diet, exercise and available methods of chemoprevention, leading scientists estimate we could prevent approximately half of all cancers nationwide.

This November, the American Association for Cancer Research will host its Ninth Annual International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, located in Philadelphia. Thousands of scientists will gather to discuss new data on lifestyle modifications, chemoprevention and other strategies.

Findings presented at this year's meeting will include:

  • emerging chemoprevention strategies for pancreatic cancer;
  • how exercise reduces the risk of cancer in women;
  • why soy may prevent some forms of breast cancer;
  • the role of vitamin D in cancer prevention; and,
  • side effects with prostate and breast cancer prevention strategies.

To help you plan your coverage of the conference, the program schedule is available online at: http://www.aacr.org/page 22416.aspx. An electronic press kit containing the press releases and selected highlighted abstracts will be available on Nov. 2, via EurekAlert, Newswise and to members of the media registered through the AACR Communications Department.

When: Nov. 7-10, 2010

Where:
Pennsylvania Convention Center
Philadelphia, Pa.
