Proffered Paper Session on Personalised Medicine, Sunday
25 September, 09:00-10:50
Biomarkers are becoming more important in determining effectiveness of treatment response. This session highlights the latest data in detecting novel mutations in NSCLC, colorectal cancer and melanoma. Featuring studies on evaluating plasma VEGFA as potential biomarker following treatment of Bevacizumab, it also includes a study on using dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasound (DCE-US) as an effective tool to evaluate antiangiogenic Special Session on MIRACLE Workshop: Novel
Technologies for the Isolation and Analysis of Circulating
Tumour Cells, 14:45-16:45
Circulating tumour cells (CTC) and disseminating tumour cells (DTC) are cells detached from the primary tumour, acting as seeds for tumour growth on other sites and are very important predictive and prognostic markers for the file:///C|/Users/nicola.FECS/Desktop/Issue7_August2011_rev3.htm[07/10/2011 15:05:42] treatment of advanced cancer. However, with very low levels of CTCs in the blood, they are difficult to detect and isolate.
One of two special sessions, the MIRACLE workshop will discuss development of novel technologies to detect CTCs and issues and hurdles to be overcome to produce highly sophisticated devices to detect minute quantities of CTCs and DTCs in the blood and bone marrow. Leading experts in bioengineering and nanotechnology, Leo Terstappen, Philip Gascoyne, Chiwee Teck Lee and Lisbet Lagae will discuss and address these issues.
MIRACLE is a collaborative project between 14 partners from universities, research institutions and companies from all over Europe. The term MIRACLE is an acronym of the projects title ‘Magnetic Isolation and moleculaR
Analysis of single CircuLating and disseminated tumour cElls on chip’. The
project is funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework
Special Session on Circulating Tumour Cells, Monday 26
September, 13.15-14.15
This session will present the use of CTCs in the clinic and existing technologies for detecting CTCs and their markers.
Klaus Plantel will discuss the reasons for monitoring CTCs during and after systemic adjuvant therapy. Stefan Sleijfer will present the importance of CTC enumeration and characterisation. Caroline Dive will discuss the technological This session also features a highly interactive discussion on how the detection Special Session on Stem Cells, Sunday 25 September,
Stem cells are core cells that can divide and differentiate into different types of specialised cells, and can self renew in more cells. Stem cell research has been performed across multiple diseases, most notably Parkinson’s disease. This session will cover cancer stem cells in different tumour types. Rune Toftgard will discuss stem cells in skin cancer. Per Giuseppe Pelicci will talk about haematopoietic stem cells and Simone Niclou will consider cancer stem Each presentation will highlight the importance of cancer stems cells in the survival of the tumour and the implications to future cancer treatments.
