Euro Cancer Market Analysis and Reports | Belgium Conference Series

Market Analysis - Euro Cancer 2017


Cancer is a major public health problem worldwide and stands as one of the biggest killers in the 21st century. Cancer is treated with Surgery, Radiation, Chemotherapy, Hormone therapy, Biological therapy (includes Immunotherapy, Monoclonal Antibody therapy). Type of Cancer treatment is based on location and grade of the tumor, stage of disease and general state of a person’s health. Cancer mortality can be reduced if the disease is detected and treated early. Advancements of Anti-Cancer therapies are growing rapidly due to the awareness of early diagnosis, longer treatment duration and increased effectiveness of drug therapies. Among all the treatments, Radiation therapy is commonly used for any cancer treatment. Hence, Radiation Oncology, a branch emerged, as a medical specialty field that involves treating cancer cells with regulated doses of high energy radiation. Presently, Radiotherapy is used in a wide range of applications for the treatment of benign cancers, prostate cancer, gynecological cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, penile cancer and many more.

The organizing committee is gearing up for an exciting and informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world. We invite you to join us at the Anti-Cancer Therapy 2017, where you will be sure to have a meaningful experience with scholars from around the world. All members of the Anti-Cancer Therapy 2017 organizing committee look forward to meet you in Brussels, Belgium.
