April 7-8, 2017, Leuven, Belgium
This 2-day residential workshop will cover the molecular background of the common gynecological cancers, pathways involved in their carcinogenesis, potential targets for individualized treatment but also genetics and evolving therapeutics and their toxicity. Targeted treatments are already used in the clinic and expected to grow since most pharmaceutical companies have several targeted drugs in their pipeline, highlighting the need of good knowledge in clinical practice. Contents will be delivered by clinically oriented, multidisciplinary, plenary lectures.
This workshop also covers 3 parallel practical sessions on tumor immunology, and also interactive case presentations and group discussions.
• Cancer genetics
• Molecular pathways in ovarian cancer
• Molecular pathways in low-grade ovarian cancer
• Molecular pathways in endometrial cancer
• Molecular pathways in cervical cancer
• Targeting angiogenesis
• Targeting tyrosinkinases
• Targeting PARP
• Immunotherapy in gynecological malignancies
• Toxicities of immunotherapy and their management
• Why do studies of targeted treatment fail?
The aim of this 2-days workshop is to enhance the attendees´ ability to understand the molecular pathways of gynaecological malignancies. Attendees will also learn about the genetic disposition, potential role of cancer genetics in treatment decisions and counselling of patients. The workshop will review the mechanisms and current evidence of targeted treatment strategies and will help participants to recognise side effects and manage toxicities appropriately.
The workshop will be as interactive as possible allowing sufficient time for group discussions, also including a session where attendees are invited to present case scenarios from their clinical practice.
Workshop attendance is limited to 40 participants.
