You are invited to an advance news briefing for the world's only conference on cancer and the adolescent on Wednesday 29 March 2006, and to the two-day conference itself on Thursday 30 and Friday 31 March 2006. Organised by the pioneering charity, Teenage Cancer Trust, the two-day conference will see leading specialists from around the world present new research findings on:

  • Problems of compliance with treatment
  • The effect of private medical insurance on survival in countries with no national health service
  • Whether girls should be routinely vaccinated against HPV
