Topics Covered: For many solid tumors, the treatment of choice is often surgical resection followed by radiation therapy, with or without chemotherapy, depending on the performance status of the patient. However, patient prognosis even after these interventions remains poor, and therapy is often accompanied by severe toxicity. More effective and less toxic therapies are needed. As the molecular details of tumor growth, angiogenesis, and progression become known, novel agents that target these pathways are being developed. These novel agents are being investigated as possible radiotherapy sensitizers, and clinical trials to date suggest a place for these agents in combined-modality treatment regimens for some solid tumors. This meeting will serve as a forum for opinion leaders to discuss emerging data on the appropriate use of targeted and cytotoxic therapies in combined-modality treatment regimens of solid tumors.
