Topics Covered: At the conclusion of this congress, you should be able to: Discuss approaches to target the tumor microenvironment for cancer therapy Describe approaches to inhibit DNA repair and disrupt the cell cycle in cancer cells Evaluate data on inhibitors of novel signaling pathways in cancer therapy Assess the role of new imaging techniques in drug delivery and monitoring response Evaluate strategies to induce apoptotic signaling in tumor cells Appraise new approaches to develop immunotherapeutic agents in cancer therapy Discuss approaches to target protein homeostasis for cancer therapy Identify appropriate clinical trials of novel targeted agents that benefit specific groups of patients with cancer.

Conference Objectives: Designed to provide participants with cutting-edge information on novel targeted anticancer therapies now in development, including the most current clinical data on those agents as well as information on their mechanisms of action. The congress will provide a unique opportunity for medical oncologists, translational researchers, and drug developers from academia and industry to learn from and interact with international leaders in novel therapeutic and drug discovery platforms and to obtain a preview of agents in development for the next generation of cancer therapy.

Who Should Attend: Medical oncologists, translational researchers (MDs and PhDs), and drug developers from academia and industry interested in cancer drug development. Other health care professionals interested in the treatment of cancer are also invited to attend.

AACR: Novel Breast Cancer Therapy Exploits Autophagy Response

Apr 20, 2014 - Targeting a cancer cell's heat shock response protein 70 with panobinostat to induce autophagy in the stressed cell, and then introducing an autophagy inhibitor to force the cell to die off, may be an effective novel treatment strategy for breast cancer, according to a Nov. 16 press briefing presented at the American Association for Cancer Research -- National Cancer Institute -- European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer International Conference, "Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics," held from Nov. 15 to 19 in Boston.
