Dear Colleagues,

Winning the war against cancer has been the focal point of pharmaceutical and medical research for over 40 years. A single “cure-all” drug for cancer have not yet been developed even though many new cancer treatment strategies and drug targets have recently been discovered. The diversity of the many cancer types and the complexity of their mechanisms have contributed to a conundrum that researchers had strived to solve for many decades. The complexity requires researchers and regulators to join forces to fight cancer diseases in all frontiers.

The 8th Annual Cancer Drugs Research and Development Conference on January 27-28, 2011 in San Diego, California, USA will provide an extensive look at the successes as well as the challenges that face modern cancer drug development and provide you with an update on cancer drugs currently in development through clinical trials. A look at live cancer vaccines, novel compounds and antibody drug conjugates will prime you with the future direction of cancer drugs with key topics to be discussed by leading experts.

The sessions will cover the following:

Session I: Patient Selection and Stratification
Identification and Utilization of Biomarkers
Session II: Cancer Therapy: An Examination of Drug Modalities
Monoclonal Antibodies and Biosuperiors
Evolution of Antibody Drug Conjugates
Session III: The Challenges Facing Modern Cancer Drugs
Regulatory Hurdles
Changes in Regulations to Acknowledge Biologics
Cancer Metastasis
Cancer Cachexia
Session IV: Lessons Learned from Combination Therapies
Examining Immunotherapies with Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy
Angiogenesis and Small Molecules
Session V: Novel Approaches in Clinical Trials
Adaptive Designs
Session VI: Live Cancer Vaccines
Listeria monocytogenes used to fight cervical cancer
Panel discussion with live cancer vaccine researchers

Learn, brainstorm and collaborate with your colleagues by signing up today!

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego.

Kind Regards,
