March 3, 2018 DC1816: Neuroendocrine Cancer Management: Evolving Therapies & Approaches
Register   Details

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) pose numerous clinical challenges due to their rarity, heterogeneity and lack of standardized diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Over the last five years, the treatment landscape and biologic understanding of neuroendocrine tumors has shifted dramatically with significant advancements in diagnosis, loco-regional and systemic therapies rapidly being developed. Several large randomized phase III trials of novel treatments have resulted in new drug approvals and the increased knowledge of specific pathways implicated in neuroendocrine tumor growth has shifted the focus of many clinical trials.

In light of these exciting new developments, this conference has been customized to provide the latest evidence based practice to health care professionals. Each session will address how the expanding treatment choices and research studies will influence individual treatment plans and impact NET patient management in the future. Don’t miss out on this important and informative symposium.
