We would like to invite you to our virtual symposium “A Global Perspective on the Management of Neuroendocrine Tumors – the Evolving Role of Targeted Radionuclide Diagnostics and Therapy” at the ESMO Congress 2021 on Friday September 17, 2021 from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm CEST, on channel 3.
The symposium will be chaired by Raj Srirajaskanthan, MD, FRCP, King’s College Hospital, London, UK who will introduce the expert speakers: Simron Singh, MD, MPH, Sunnybrook Odette Cancer Centre, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada; Namrata Vijayvergia, MD, FACP, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, U.S. and Grace Kong, MBBS (Hons), FRACP, FAANMS, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Australia.
Targeted Radionuclide Therapy is rapidly becoming a new treatment paradigm in oncology, providing a targeted and precise therapeutic approach, as exemplified in this symposium by neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). As well as discussing the increasing prevalence of NETs and the evolution of treatment guidelines, an overview of the role of Targeted Radionuclide Therapy in clinical trials will be provided. In addition to the ongoing COMPETE trial, the new phase III trial COMPOSE, a prospective study in high Grade 2 and Grade 3 gastroenteropancreatic NETs, will be presented.
We look forward to welcoming you to join us in what promises to be an exciting overview of the current treatment options for patients with neuroendocrine tumors, with a particular focus on Targeted Radionuclide Therapy. This novel therapeutic approach is providing a paradigm shift in the management of patients with NETs and also for patients with other oncology conditions of high unmet medical need.
