Breast cancer research meeting sets record


Just received word that this year's San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium has received a record number of abstracts with 1,641 abstracts submitted by researchers from around the world. This breaks the previous record of 1,464 made in 2009. It remains to be seen how many or what type of abstracts will be presented, though. Abstracts are usually not released until just days before the meeting, and with the conference held Dec. 6-10, that's a long time to wait. In the meantime, we have the ASCO Breast Cancer Symposium being held Sept. 8-10. Some of the research presented will include detection and imaging, triple-negative breast cancer, survivorship issues, hormone-positive breast cancer, bone health, neuropathy and treating young breast cancer patients.You can follow CURE's coverage of these two meetings by signing up for our breast cancer newsletter here.
