The multi-faceted and comprehensive management (multidisciplinary approach) of neoplastic diseases sufferers is now established and critically contributes to the therapeutic effects.
Over the last years, the great advances in biology, with the decoding of the human genome and the understanding of the basic mechanisms of carcinogenecis and the system’s defense against the ‘non-self’, along with the huge technological progress, have significantly enriched the medical armory against cancer. However, constant and intensive research, updating and rapid consolidation of new knowledge ability in everyday medical practice are required; needs, which the conference in question aspires to cover.
