ASCO releases studies from upcoming annual meeting
Date:5/19/2011

Alexandria, Va. The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) today highlighted several studies in a press briefing from among more than 4,000 abstracts publicly posted online at www.asco.org in advance of ASCO's 47th Annual Meeting. An additional 17 plenary, late-breaking and other major studies will be released in on-site press conferences at the Annual Meeting.

The meeting, which is expected to draw approximately 30,000 cancer specialists, will be held June 3-7, 2011, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill. The theme of this year's meeting is "Patients. Pathways. Progress."

"This year marks the 40th anniversary of the signing of the National Cancer Act, a law that led to major new investments in cancer research. Every day in our offices, and every year at the ASCO meeting, we see the results of those investments. People with cancer are living longer, with a better quality of life, than ever before," said George W. Sledge Jr, MD, President of ASCO, Ballve-Lantero Professor of Oncology and professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

"With our growing understanding of the nature of cancer development and behavior, cancer is becoming a chronic disease that a growing number of patients can live with for many years," said Dr. Sledge. "The studies released today are the latest examples of progress against the disease, from new personalized treatments, to new approaches to screening and prevention."

Studies highlighted in today's press briefing include:

  • First Large Study of HPV and Pap Co-Testing in Routine Clinical Practice Confirms Many Women Can Safely Extend Testing to Every Three Years; HPV Testing Alone Also Appears to be Superior to Pap Testing Alone: The first large-scale study of both human papillomavirus (HPV) testing and Pap smear for cervical cancer screening in routine clinical practice confirms that women can safely extend their screening inter
