  Fourth Annual Palm Beach Cancer Symposium: Moving Beyond the Ordinary  
  October 17, 2001


  Boca Raton Community Hospital CME Committee, Delray Beach Marriott, Delray Beach, FL, USA
March 22-23, 2002

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute continue to report declining death rates from cancer, particularly for breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancers as well as for leukemia. This decrease is due in part to an improved understanding of how cancer works, allowing the design of more effective treatment strategies. It is, however, imperative that we continue to develop effective preventive strategies and screening techniques to maximize our success.

Because of the continuous advances in the field of oncology, it is imperative that practicing physicians be aware of the latest treatment options in order to provide their patients with optimal care. Since cytotoxic chemotherapy is injurious to normal cells, it is desirable to develop novel, targeted therapies that are customized for a particular tumor type and have little or no collateral damage to the normal tissue. This meeting will cover new knowledge about such therapies and developments that have just entered the clinical arena.

This comprehensive course will:
Provide a review of the current advances in the treatment of cancer with novel, targeted agents
Describe the future impact of these therapies in improving survival and quality of life
Describe the latest advances in employing these agents with currently available therapies
