HemOnc Today Melanoma and Cutaneous Malignancies to highlight advances in research, patient care

The HemOnc Today and Healio.com/Hematology-Oncology team will present live coverage from the HemOnc Today Melanoma and Cutaneous Malignancies annual meeting, starting April 11.

The conference will highlight new research and advances in oncology, dermatology and cutaneous malignancies, including discussions of immunotherapy with ipilimumab, anti-P1 antibodies, targeted therapy for patients with BRAF mutations, combination therapies of BRAF and a MEK inhibitor, immunotherapy with IL-2 and injectable therapies.

“Our program is designed for hematologists/oncologists, dermatologists, researchers, physician assistants, nurses and students,” Sanjiv S. Agarwala, MD, chief of hematology/oncology at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, Pa., and a HemOnc Today Editorial Board member said. “This is a dynamic meeting that encourages audience participation, so that we may all benefit from each others’ experiences and challenges. This intimate and interactive approach is our niche — time and space constraints at larger meetings won’t allow for such open communication between faculty and attendees about this specialized topic.”

Attendees will also review:

  • Comprehensive education from the biology of the disease to the management of patients, including disease prevention, current and emerging diagnostic technologies, genetic testing, adjuvant therapy, emerging therapies for regional disease and systemic therapies.
  • New research and science covering the MSLT-1 clinical trial results presented by Charles M. Balch, MD, opposing results of T-VEC and Allovectin 7 trials, what’s new in other cutaneous malignancies and coping with the rising costs of melanoma care in 2014.
  • Expert perspective from renowned specialists who have advanced expertise in oncology, dermatology and cutaneous malignancies and will explain how you can apply the new research and advances presented to your own patients and practice.
  • Interactive format offering the opportunity to exchange experiences, ideas and research with faculty and colleagues.
