Fall Meeting of the EORTC / Endocrine Task Force 2017 & Grupo de estudo da tireoide da SPEDM
2017/11/28
 

28 November 2017

Auditorium Mariano Gago, i3S/ Ipatimup, Porto, Portugal

Rua Alfredo Allen, 208, 4200-393 Porto, Portugal

 

 

Oncology has witnessed remarkable challenges and improvements in recent years. If this is true for oncology in general, it is particularly impressive for thyroid cancer diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.

The 2017 edition of WHO book highlights a new diagnostic entity (NIFT-P) and “resuscitates” an old one (Hürthle cell tumours).

A new staging system, which will be used from 2018 on, changes a couple of well-established prognostic criteria (i.e. age and microscopic invasion).

Recently described genetic alterations seem to provide per se, for the first time, significant prognostic informations (TERTp mutations).

Finally, one is witnessing a trend towards downgrading of RAI doses and an attempt to find usefull targeted therapies in aggressive cancers.

All these changes will imply consensus and multidisciplinary learning.

We think that the joint Fall Meeting of the Endocrine Task Force from the EORTC (EORTC EnTF) and Grupo de estudo da Tireoide da SPEDM,  that will be held in Porto creates the perfect geographic and scientific ambiance to discuss all the aforementioned issues in a multidisciplinary and comprehensive way, taking the advantage of having the presence of some of the world leaders in different topics.  

We hope you will enjoy the Fall Meeting …and the city of Porto (from where the name PORTUGAL was born).
