ECC Symposium

The why, the which, and the how of targeting angiogenesis in GI malignancies

Official Sponsored Satellite Symposium at European Cancer Congress 2015 - Monday 28 September 2015

Angiogenesis plays an important role in the progression of gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies. Anti-angiogenic treatments have improved the overall survival of patients with these cancers. The introduction of new anti-angiogenic agents warrants both exploration of the latest clinical data and discussion on how treatments involving anti-angiogenic drugs can be used to optimize outcomes in this patient group.

Learning objectives of the symposium:

  • To understand the mechanisms and biology of angiogenesis in cancer
  • To be aware of the latest clinical trials investigating angiogenesis-targeting therapies in GI malignancies
  • To understand which therapies or treatment combinations produce optimal patient outcomes
  • To understand which patients would benefit from the latest developments, and how to optimize their management in daily clinical practice
