ESMO and Imedex announce partnership for the World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer(R)

16.12.2004


The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO)and Imedex, Inc. announced today their collaboration in the promotion of The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer®, a clinically-focused Congress that has attracted thousands of oncologists and gastroenterologists since its inception in 1999. In a joint statement Paris Kosmidis, MD and President of ESMO, Stefan Terwindt, President of the Congress organizer, Imedex, Inc., Eric Van Cutsem, MD, PhD, and Mario Dicato, MD, Congress co-chairmen, emphasized the benefits of collaboration and dedication to the future success of the Congress.



"The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer is the most important international meeting on gastrointestinal cancer,” Dicato said, “and the endorsement by such a prominent organization as ESMO will certainly raise the exposure of this event internationally.”

"The endorsement of the World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer fits into the ongoing mission of ESMO to provide medical oncologists around the world with the information, knowledge, and experience that are the backbones of excellence in clinical practice,” said Kosmidis. “The World Congress is leading the way in offering clinically significant information to its growing number of attendees each year. We believe that this Congress plays a significant role in educating and updating medical oncologists working in the field of gastrointestinal cancers and through this collaboration, we can bring a high quality educational experience to a growing network of practicing physicians.”


The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer (www.worldgicancer.com) is entering its 7th year, with the 2005 meeting scheduled for 15-18 June 2005 in Barcelona, Spain. The Congress provides a forum where specialists in cancer research, leading oncologists and practicing clinicians review the state-of-the-art in gastrointestinal cancer and share the latest information on its multidisciplinary management. A total of 86 countries were represented by 2,250 attendees in 2004.

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
