ESMO 2012 Congress: Program preview
Date:9/4/2012

The final program of the ESMO 2012 Congress including all late-breaking abstract titles is online! http://www.esmo.org/events/vienna-2012-congress/program.html

The ESMO 2012 Congress looks to be one of the best in this year's oncology scenario, possibly a "practice-changing" congress: results from long awaited trials; new drug approvals or new indications for drugs already used in other settings; randomized phase III studies and trials in earlier phases of research, which indicate new signals of activity or bring new concepts for future research; also studies that seem disappointing if you simply look at numbers, but with beautiful scientific rationale, for which expert and lively discussions are expected on how to move on with research agenda priorities or in the practice arena upon non-validation of the original hypothesis

Watch out for thrilling results in the following areas and make sure you don't miss the expert discussions on the future of treatments for these diseases:

  • Lung cancer: crizotinib, a new ready-to-use targeted drug for a molecularly defined sub-set of patients based on the results of the first phase III study in such setting; study results offering for the first time directions on how to treat patients with a certain EGFR mutation; first-time positive results for sorafenib treatment based on biomarker analysis in heavily pre-treated patients
  • Renal cell carcinoma: new drug in the jungle of available treatments for RCC; different strategies to target the disease
  • Melanoma: combination of MEK and BRAF inhibitors proves clinically meaningful to delay resistance
  • Early and metastatic breast cancer: answers on standard duration of adjuvant treatment for HER2-positive early breast cancer; what's behind low breast conserving surgery in the context of clinical trials;
  • Gastrointestinal tumors: what could be the role
