Description

For the fourth consecutive year, Breast International Group (BIG) and the European Organisation for the Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) are combining their efforts and expertise by organizing an annual Pink October webinar for a scientific audience.

 

This one-hour webinar will take place on Wednesday 19 October 2022 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CET. Registration is free but mandatory. See the link below.

 

The theme of this year’s webinar is “The unmet needs of older patients with breast cancer”. The objective is to create further awareness about the need to include more of the growing population of older patients in clinical trials. We will provide facts and figures, focus on the importance of geriatric assessment, recommend screening tools and highlight examples of recent research being done in elderly patients (e.g., the phase 2 APPALACHES trial, being carried out through the EORTC and BIG network of investigators. This is the first study to compare palbociclib with chemotherapy in patients with high-risk ER-positive breast cancer treated with standard adjuvant endocrine therapy).
