Combined drug-radiation treatment: biological basis, current applications and perspectives 2019

Jun 07 - 09, 2019   |   Seoul, Seoul  South Korea
Conference Brochure

Combined drug-radiation treatment: biological basis, current applications and perspectives is organized by European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and will be held from Jun 07 - 09, 2019 at Severance Hospital, Seoul, South Korea.

Target Audience:
The course is aimed at radiation oncologists and medical oncologists involved in the multidisciplinary treatment of cancer.

Course Aim:
Effective cancer treatment necessitates both high efficacy of local treatment and combatting sub-clinical systemic disease. Consequently, cancer therapy today involves various combinations of local and systemic treatment modalities. Of those, combining drugs and radiation has been attracting particular attention both in terms of its biological rationale and its potential of increasing the therapeutic outcome. The course aims at updating participants about established and emerging knowledge in this field. It will provide the key-messages that biological and clinical research is currently bringing to the oncology community.

This course aims to:
• Update participants about biological effects of combining drugs and radiation in normal and tumour tissue
• Present evidence-based clinical applications of combined modality treatment using drugs and radiation in major human malignancies
• Stimulate case-based discussion on the interdisciplinary treatment of cancer
• Present future perspectives for combining drugs and radiation.

Learning Outcomes:
By the End of This Course Participants Should Be Able to:

• Describe the Rationale and Mechanisms of the Action of Combined Drug Radiation Treat­ment in Cancer
• Discuss the Evidence for Combined Drug Ra­diation Treatment in Different Tumour Sites
• Select Patients for Combined Drug Radiation Treatment
• Decide on the Optimum Treatment Strategy, Sequencing and Duration, for Different Patients
