April 14th, from 3PM thru 5PM
At COBIS (Ole Maaløes Vej 3, 2200 N Copenhagen)
Bioanalytical information about the mutational landscape and activation of signalling cascades of tumor cells has sparked the development of targeted agents. Novel and powerful immuno-therapeutic concepts have recently been developed. These developments have opened new avenues for personalization of therapy for cancer patients. Personalized therapy has the vision and concept to increase the cancer therapy efficacy and decrease the potential adverse events.
Personalized medicine requires specific concepts for clinical development as defining patient eligibility based on biomarkers/molecular markers rather than tumor type, exploring combinatorial therapies and adpative designs.
The interactive seminar is planned to outline the most promising diagnostic tools to guide patient selection. Clinical study designs that are specifically tailored to personalized therapy are presented and discussed. Critical aspects of approach and conduct of clinical studies for immunotherapy in cancer patients will be presented including integration of immune-related response criteria, early response assessments and immunomonitoring in the conduct of clinical studies.
