BioConference Live Hosts High Level Speakers from UCSF at Their Virtual Conference in May

Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2013

BioConference Live is a premiere producer of online conferences aimed at covering a variety of science verticals, including Clinical Diagnostics, Genetics & Genomics, Cancer Research & Discovery, and Laboratory Animal Science. Each annual conference is entirely online for easy attendance and free for participants.

BioConference Live presents Michael Mann, Chief of General Thoracic Surgery at the San Francisco VA Medical Center and Professor at the University of California, San Francisco, as a keynote speaker in the upcoming BioConference Live Clinical Diagnostics May 29-31, 2013. This will be the first year for Dr. Mann to join the excellent presentations at BioConference Live. Dr. Mann will be discussing the Molecular Prognosis in the Management of Early Stage Lung Cancer. Survival rates for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain unacceptably low compared to other common solid tumors. This mortality reflects a weakness in conventional staging, as 30-45% even of stage I patients harbor undetected metastasis. The need for better discrimination of high-risk patients in both stages I and II NSCLC is underscored by the documentation that adjuvant chemotherapy offers the possibility of cure for occult metastasis of NSCLC. Despite this possibility to improve survival through early intervention, however, many stage II and nearly all stage I patients with occult metastasis still forgo adjuvant chemotherapy because there has been no well-validated means of identifying those patients at highest risk. Dr. Mann will describe a molecular assay that represents a more effective means of implementing the current standard of care and of improving clinical decision-making in patients with early stage non-squamous, NSCLC.

  •     Nancy E Lane, MD, Endowed Professor of Medicine and Rheumatology, Director of Musculoskeletal Diseases of Aging Research Group, Director of Academic Geriatric Resource Program, Co-Director of Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health, Co-Director of Center for Translational Research in Osteoarthritis, UC Davis
