Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson breast cancer symposium features latest in research, treatment
Date:4/6/2011

Rui, M.D., Ph.D, also of the department of cancer biology at Jefferson Medical College, who will discuss therapy-relevant stratification of breast cancer, and Paula Ryan, M.D., Ph.D., of Fox Chase Cancer Center's department of medical oncology, who will present a clinical update on patients with triple negative breast cancer, a high-risk disease that is characterized as more aggressive and less responsive to standard treatment.

Hyman B. Muss, M.D., of the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, will lead a session titled "Geriatrics: Treating the Elderly with Breast Cancer."

Sixty percent of cancer in the United States occurs in persons aged 65 and older. At the same time, senior patients may have acute or chronic diseases that make treating their cancer challenging. That's why the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson established the new, multidisciplinary Senior Adult Oncology Center to provide a comprehensive consultation for senior patients in order to meet those special challenges.
