Topics Covered: Conference Summary - Participants at this meeting will learn about new ways and means to optimize chemotherapy and hormonal therapy in cancer patients. Recent progress in antiemetic agents allows long term control of nausea and vomiting, not only acute phase control. New growth factors promise an easier erythropoietic and granulocytic support, and such support can be crucial for optimal outcomes. Bisphosphonates may have a role in adjuvant therapy, along with chemotherapy and hormonal agents. Decrease of mucositis and appropriate treatment of infectious complications in outpatients with solid tumours will also be discussed.
