4th Cancer Cachexia Conference –
Insights into New Discoveries and Translational Therapies
On behalf of the Committee, we would like to invite you to take part in what promises to be another exciting scientific conference. This follows our 2012 (Boston), 2014 (Montreal) and 2016 (Washington, DC) meetings.
This meeting, international in scope, will again feature outstanding speakers, all leading scientists and physician-scientists actively working in the area of cancer cachexia. Oral and poster presentations along with time allotted for social interactions will fill the 2 1/2-day program. We plan to repeat the half-day pre-meeting focused on the advancement of clinical trials in our field, and again will provide new sessions, one this year being “Biomarkers”, which have become essential in better diagnosing the cachexia syndrome in cancer patients.
We hope these and other activities we are planning for the program will ensure a successful meeting and encourage you to join us in Philadelphia in September 2018!
