'Rare' cancers in the spotlight at major European conference
Date:2/24/2010

Regional Hospital of Treviso, Italy co-chair of the meeting. "We know that the best treatment results come when we can combine information from biology, pathology and the clinic. The goal of this conference is to improve treatment across Europe by providing a comprehensive overview of the current medical therapy of these diseases."

Around 200 specialists in sarcoma and GIST are expected to attend this niche conference, which is organized by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) in cooperation with the Milan Istituto Nazionale Tumori, and with the support of Conticanet, a EU-funded project for clinical research on connective tissue cancers in Europe.

"If we are going to make progress against these diseases in Europe then we need to make a concerted effort to understand them better," said Conticanet's coordinator, Dr. Jean-Yves Blay, who is one co-chair of the conference.

The conference will have a particular focus on the molecular and pathological bases of soft tissue sarcomas and GIST, aiming to give a perspective on the state of the art in medical treatment and what new approaches are coming. Some of the most respected and pioneering experts dealing with these rare cancers will be among the speakers.

"Sarcomas being rare cancers make this meeting a significant expression of ESMO's efforts on rare diseases," said Dr. Casali. "When all the 'rare' tumors are considered as a group, they represent one-fourth of all cancer cases."
