2nd ESDO-IDCA GI Cancer Workshop on the occasion of UEG Week Amsterdam

As last year’s workshop at UEG Week Stockholm 2011 was an enormous success, ESDO has again been entrusted by the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) to develop another GI Cancer Workshop on the occasion of UEG Week Amsterdam 2012, together with the International Digestive Cancer Alliance, IDCA.

The workshop gave a comprehensive overview on the most relevant techniques used to establish biomarkers as well as their pros and cons and provided the state of the art on biomarkers in screening, early detection, evaluation of prognosis and response prediction for gastrointestinal malignancies. In addition, the view of the pharmaceutical industry on biomarkers in GI oncology was discussed.

Thanks to our excellent Faculty the workshop distinguished itself in top scientific quality and precious exchange of ideas with leading experts in the field of GI oncology.
