AACR hosts molecular diagnostics conference in Denver, Colo.
Date:8/3/2010

What: As scientists understand more about a tumor's underlying biology, personalized medicine is emerging as the new patient management paradigm.

This year, the American Association for Cancer Research will host its fourth Molecular Diagnostics in Cancer Therapeutic Development: Challenges and Horizons conference at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver, Colo. This meeting regularly draws representatives from academia and industry to discuss the latest in diagnostic tools and emerging therapies.

Findings presented at this year's meeting will include:

  • new data on phase III kidney cancer drugs in development;
  • emerging microRNA research on bladder cancer and lung cancer;
  • new techniques for capturing and measuring circulating tumor cells;
  • better measurements of prostate-specific antigen post-surgery in people with prostate cancer;
  • more effective screening in the human papillomavirus era; and,
  • nanotechnology techniques for hematologic malignancies.

To help you plan your coverage of the conference, the program schedule is available online at www.aacr.org/diagnostics2010, and an electronic press kit containing the press releases and selected abstracts will be available on Sept. 20, 2010, via EurekAlert, Newswise and to members of the media registered through the AACR Communications Department.
