Need for the conference
Fleming Gulfâ€™s MENA Oncology Conference has been organized as a result of the rising incidence of breast cancer in the MENA (Middle-Ease and North-African) region, and seeks to bring this disease to the forefront of public awareness and discussion.
Breast cancer, despite all medical and technological advances, has been on the rise in the last 50 years or so and is expected to be diagnosed in 25 million women over the next 25 years, with incidence rates climbing in developing countries. In many parts of the world outside of the U.S. and Western Europe, awareness of the disease remains low, ultimately resulting in higher mortality rates.
In the light of such compelling statistics, the MENA Oncology Conference seeks to provide a platform that will impart new information and consolidated knowledge, and discuss controversial issues regarding the prevention and risk of breast cancer, its imaging and screening, new approaches in targeted therapies, and more.
MENA Oncology Conference will be a great opportunity for all interested stakeholders, from all over the world, to get together and exchange views on how to deal with breast cancer. With a speaker panel comprising renowned doctors and research specialists from several countries worldwide, including Egypt, KSA, Jordon, Canada, USA, Switzerland, UAE, Morocco, and Turkey, to name a few, this event will prove to be no ordinary gathering.
Topics of discussion at this forum will include:
â€¢Regional Perspective on Breast Cancer
â€¢The Challenges facing national cancer control plans
â€¢Early detection and Screening of Breast cancer
â€¢Controversies in Breast cancer: Adjuvant and Neoadjuvant Therapy
â€¢Update and change in the treatment of Triple Negative Breast Cancer
â€¢Evolving Issues in Inflammatory Breast Cancer
â€¢Prevention and Risk of Breast Cancer
â€¢Imaging and Screening of Breast Cancer
â€¢New Approaches in Targeted Therapy for Breast Cancer
â€¢Cancer Stem Cells and Breast Cancer Metastasis
â€¢Management of Metastatic disease
