8th Euro Global Summit on Cancer Therapy
November 03-05, 2015 Valencia, Spain
 

Theme: Emerging & Innovative approaches for the advancement of cancer therapy

Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are over 100 different types of cancer, and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected.

Cancer harms the body when damaged cells divide uncontrollably to form lumps or masses of tissue called tumors (except in the case of leukemia where cancer prohibits normal blood function by abnormal cell division in the blood stream). Tumors can grow and interfere with the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems, and they can release hormones that alter body function. Tumors that stay in one spot and demonstrate limited growth are generally considered to be benign.

More dangerous, or malignant, tumors form when two things occur:

  1. a cancerous cell manages to move throughout the body using the blood or lymph systems, destroying healthy tissue in a process called invasion
  2. that cell manages to divide and grow, making new blood vessels to feed itself in a process called angiogenesis.

Importance & Scope:

Europeans are plagued by cancer, with almost 2.8 million people or 38 percent of the population suffering each year, Cancer and illnesses cause a huge economic and social burden measured in the hundreds of billions of Euros.

In Spain, there are approximately 0.8 million new cases of cancer each year. Breast cancer, the most common tumour in women, presents a high survival percentage: 83% of patients have survived this type of cancer after five years.

Lung cancer is one of the most aggressive tumours and survival after five years is very low: only 10% of patients diagnosed with a malignant neoplasm survive for more than five years.

Colorectal cancer (of the colon and rectum), the most common malignant tumour if we group men and women together, presents an average survival rate of 50-55% five years after diagnosis, meaning that half the patients survive this form of cancer.

Prostate cancer, today the most common tumour in men, has an increasingly favorable prognosis, with a global survival rate of 76%, which is higher in young adults.

Ovarian cancer presents a very varied prognosis depending on age: whilst 70% of the group between 15 and 44 years survives this form of cancer, this is the case for only 19% of those over 74 years-old.

 The CONFERENCE on cancer therapy is intended to provide a medium for the communication of results and ideas in the field of cancer science. The CONFERENCE welcomes contributions in both the basic and clinical aspects of the cancer science and special sections on the Health Care and a forum for cultural topics related to the cancer science          

 

Why Valencia?

Valencia is much spurred by tourism. Many local landmarks were restored, including the ancient Towers of the medieval city (Serrano Towers and Quart Towers), and the San Miguel de los Reyes monastery which now holds a conservation library. The city has numerous convention centres and venues for trade events, among them the Feria Valencia Convention and Exhibition Centre (Institución Ferial de Valencia) and the Palau de congres (Conference Palace), and several 5-star hotels to accommodate business travellers.

Valencia is one of Spain’s largest cities, and is having 3 societies & 100+ oncologist and 114 Hospitals with cancer treatment.

Conference Highlights:

  • Cancer –Basic and Applied Research
  • Organ-Specific, Cancer Genetics
  • Advances in Cancer treatment and Biomarkers
  • Anti cancer drug delivery
