The ESMO World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer, organized by Imedex, attracts more than 3,500 oncology professionals and researchers from around the globe.
BARCELONA, SPAIN (PRWEB) JUNE 08, 2017
What does the future hold for the prevention and care of patients with gastrointestinal cancers? The answer to this question and more will be highlighted from 28 June to 1 July at the ESMO 19th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer (World GI Congress) in Barcelona, Spain. New research and discoveries on malignancies affecting every component of the gastrointestinal tract will be presented at this year’s Congress. The ESMO World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer, organized by Imedex, attracts more than 3,500 oncology professionals and researchers from around the globe.
"Set firmly within today’s context of precision medicine against cancer, this 19th edition of ESMO’s annual, leading World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer will represent an important step towards reversing the current global statistics ranking colorectal, liver and pancreatic cancers in 2nd, 4th and 7th place respectively, as those claiming the most deaths,” said Josep Tabernero, MD, PhD, Vice Chair of the Congress and President-elect of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO).
Notable Keynote Lectures and Program Topics
The scientific agenda of the ESMO 19th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer encompasses more than 85 presentations, including:
Abstracts to Be Released On-site at the World GI Congress
Upwards of 425 abstracts with studies spanning the spectrum of gastrointestinal cancer prevention and care were accepted for this year’s World GI Congress. Oral and late breaking abstracts selected by the Scientific Committee for presentation as part of the agenda are embargoed until the end of the scientific session during which they are presented. Oral abstracts scheduled for presentation include:
Wednesday, 28 June 2017
Thursday, 29 June 2017
Friday, 30 June 2017
Saturday, 1 July 2017
“True to the format and scope of meetings past, this superb Congress will also tackle other less common GI malignancies to which individual sessions have been allocated,” said Tabernero. “As Vice-Chair, I can promise the very latest findings that will help us to collectively advance our treatment strategies, novel approaches and selection of therapies in combination across various tumor types. Also under the lens will be the continued debate surrounding clinical trial design, relevance of results derived from a number of leading studies, the utility of benefit scales and the promise of emerging biosimilars. In addition, with cancer cases set to rise over the coming years, we will be delving into the epidemiology of disease and assessing the latest prevention strategies aimed at putting the brakes on these soaring statistics."
Members of the press will have the opportunity to interact with some of the world’s leading authorities in the study and treatment of gastrointestinal cancers. More than 70 experts from a range of disciplines will participate in the scientific program and their presentations will provide delegates with information on the latest developments in basic and clinical research. Their report on the expert discussion will bring the Congress to a close.
Journalists are required to submit appropriate media credentials as part of their registration application. Additional media information can be found on the Congress website under Press Information.
