Phoenix conference highlights TGen's and Scottsdale Healthcare's contributions to molecular oncology
Date:1/9/2009

PHOENIX, Ariz. Jan. 8, 2009 Physician-scientists from the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Scottsdale Healthcare will present their latest findings and techniques at a national conference designed to provide cancer doctors with new treatments for their patients.

"Molecular Oncology: The Sixth Vital Sign, What Every Oncologist Should Know" is intended to help cancer doctors provide better diagnosis, early detection as well as drugs and other treatments that in some cases can slow the growth or even shrink tumors.

"Given the explosion of new information on the genetic and cellular features of malignancy, the modern oncologist must master the significance and application of cancer-related sciences,'' said Dr. Ramesh K. Ramanathan, Medical Director of TGen Clinical Research Services at Scottsdale Healthcare, a partnership between TGen and Scottsdale Healthcare Corp.

Beyond the five vital signs of pulse, respiration, temperature, blood pressure and pain, is a new sixth vital sign molecular therapeutics. This is the ability to identify the causes of disease at the molecular level in order to provide the right drugs in the right amounts at the right times for the specific needs of individual patients; what is becoming better known in health circles as personalized medicine.

"This gap in knowledge and its application in clinical practice will be addressed in this conference,'' said Dr. Ramanathan, a Senior Investigator at TGen.

Dr. Ramanathan is the co-program director of the conference, along with Dr. Daniel Von Hoff, TGen's Physician-In-Chief and the Chief Scientific Officer at TCRS. Both doctors conduct groundbreaking personalized-medicine research and clinical drug trials at TCRS in Scottsdale, and both are on the clinical faculty of the University of Arizona College of Medicine. Both will present at the conference.
