Wyomissing, PA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
Pennside Partners Ltd, a full-service pharmaceutical and biotechnology consulting firm, will send a contingent of nine oncology experts to attend the 2013 annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) to be held May 31-June 4 in Chicago. The team will gather and document information from numerous presentations and gain valuable insights from interactions with oncologists, nurses, allied health professionals and patient advocates who are key thought leaders in their field.
“This is the most important oncology conference of the year,” said Judi Space, Pennside’s Director of Oncology. “As experts in the field of oncology, it is imperative that we capture this vital meeting virtually in its entirety. We always have a large team at ASCO in order to fully analyze the implications of the latest research for pharma and biotech companies. Insights provided by these experts deepen our knowledge and understanding of the oncology universe.”
ASCO features cutting-edge scientific presentations and comprehensive educational content. Over 25,000 oncology professionals from a broad range of specialties are expected to attend. The latest breakthroughs in progress against cancer based on over 5,000 abstracts will be showcased, with important and sometimes immediate implications for patient care and practice. New data releases for every cancer tumor type will be presented with important breakthroughs showcased at large plenary sessions attended by thousands of oncology professionals.
A key theme of the conference is the burgeoning use of immunotherapies, including vaccines and PD-1 agents, in multiple oncology indications. This relatively new area of therapeutics builds on earlier successes of CTLA4 blockade and the prostate cancer vaccine to offer the promise of new options after many years of failures. Another important theme is the use of molecular subtyping through whole genome analysis as a way to properly direct therapy in an exceptionally personalized way.
