AACR-NCI-EORTC to hold molecular targets meeting in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO -- Progress in oncology drug development will take center stage Nov. 12-16, 2011, as thousands of scientists and industry experts convene at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco for the AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference: Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics.

"During the last few years, numerous innovative agents have been discovered as a result of tremendous developments in the understanding of the molecular basis of cancer," said program co-chairperson Kenneth C. Anderson, M.D., Kraft Family professor of medicine and program director and chief of the division of hematologic neoplasia at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School. "The level of excitement surrounding targeted therapy and the high caliber of the science to be presented fuel the power of this meeting to attract the world's leaders in cancer therapeutics."

Anderson, who is also editor in chief of Clinical Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, will host a press conference on new research in breast cancer at 7:00 a.m. PT on Sunday, Nov. 12.

The press conference will feature the following research:

HDAC Inhibitor May Overcome Resistance to Common Breast Cancer Drug

Benefit of Novel Drug in Breast Cancer Seen in Blood Within Weeks

Signaling Pathway Linked to Inflammatory Breast Cancer May Drive Disease Metastasis

On Nov. 12 at 11:00 a.m. PT, program co-chairperson James H. Doroshow, M.D., FACP, deputy director for clinical and translational research at the National Cancer Institute, will host a press conference on progress in angiogenesis.

The press conference will feature the following research:
