PARIS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--WIN consortium (www.winconsortium.org) announces an exceptional event entirely dedicated to combining targeted therapies and therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cancer.
“Most patients’ tumors are driven by multiple molecular aberrations that cannot be controlled by a single targeted agent. The challenge is to identify and test smart combinations of targeted agents capable of blocking optimal pathways at the same time”
“WINning Combinations for Precision Cancer Medicine”
Breakthrough biomarker investigations and combined therapeutic approaches

"This original theme is for the first time the subject of an international symposium", said Dr. Vladimir Lazar, Chief Operating Officer of WIN consortium. "Join the world’s leaders in precision cancer medicine, Leroy Hood, Richard L. Schilsky, Razelle Kurzrock, Jean-Charles Soria and many others."
"Most patients’ tumors are driven by multiple molecular aberrations that cannot be controlled by a single targeted agent. The challenge is to identify and test smart combinations of targeted agents capable of blocking optimal pathways at the same time" said John Mendelsohn, Chair of the WIN consortium.
Pr. Alexander Eggermont, Vice-Chair of WIN consortium and co-chair of the WIN2014 symposium stated: "Some combinations are currently under investigation. Results of these and additional clinical studies are eagerly awaited as they hold the promise of taking precision cancer medicine to the next level."
The WIN 2014 Symposium will address major developments in precision cancer medicine in sessions featuring the world’s leaders in basic and clinical cancer research, each session being focusing on the rationale for combinations:
- Molecular analysis of immune cells and immunotherapy
- What can we learn from haemato-oncology?
- Learning from fundamental mechanisms in pediatrics and young adults
- Combinations of targeted therapies
- Tumor cell plasticity and drugable targets
- Liquid Biopsies: new technologies, new perspectives
