INTRODUCTION
The meeting aims to update the participants on the use of the CTC assay in
cancer patients, ten years later the first published report on its prognostic
and predictive value in metastatic breast cancer.
To this purpose, we invited the speakers among the Italians who have
already used the CTCs in different cancers.
Furthermore, we will open the seminar with talks by the greatest CTC
experts to give an international-scale profile to the conference.
The focus of the meeting will be as following:
1) To sharing the knowledge of European metanalysis results on the CTC
use in MBC;
2) To involve all stakeholders in debating the use of CTC assay as
companion diagnostic, including: the health professionals, the Health
Technology Assessment service of public hospitals of Veneto region, the
Regional authorities that establish the reimbursement of new diagnostic
tests, the regulatory authorities of the Italian drug agency;
3) To present the opportunities offered by the European financial support
(Horizon 2020) toward proposals of translational medicine for cancer
patients that include the CTC assay or the study of circulating compartment.
Through this initiative, we expect to increase the network of our research
collaborations around the CTC theme.
