Talking about the latest developments in solid tumor therapy, Prof. Gluck said, "Solid Tumor Systemic Therapy was dominated over several decades by cytotoxic chemotherapy. Only few selected tumours were treated with targeted therapy e.g., anti-hormone approaches if estrogen receptor was identified as a biological target and later on with human epidermal growth factor receptors as targets. Only occasionally immunotherapy in the form of vaccination was available. Recently, through better molecular understanding of the immune system, immuno therapy has begun to emerge and now there are several compounds in the market." He further added, "These treatments helped in two ways to improve outcome in some selected solid tumours; prolonging effect of treatment including survival and reducing or avoiding toxicity of cytotoxic therapy."
Other speakers at the congress are representing organizations such as Agenus & 4-Antibody AG - Switzerland, European Society of Surgical Oncologists - UK, Imperial College London - UK, Wolfgang Goethe-University - Germany, Queen's University Belfast - UK, University of Leicester - UK, The British Association for Cancer Research - UK, APeX Disease Research Institute - USA, Valdarno Hospital - Italy, Foundation for Collaborative Medicine and Research - USA, University of Buenos Aires - Argentina, British Association of Surgical Oncology - UK & Nanomerics Ltd - UK.
