The 23rd Congress of the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO)

From 24-28 October 2004 the 23rd International Congress of the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO) will be held in the RAI Congress Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. More than 3,000 participants from around the world are expected to attend this bi-annual meeting of the ESTRO.

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the official Press Conference at 12:30CET on Tuesday 26 October. The Press Conference will take place in the "L Room" in the conference centre of the RAI.

The Press Conference will include presentations of:

  • A breast cancer study of more than 5,000 patients, which showed that a more precise and higher treatment dose decreases, by approximately 20%, the chance of breast cancer returning in women who have undergone breast saving treatment. A very high survival rate of 85% after 8 years is demonstrated.

  • New results that will dramatically improve the treatment of prostate cancer. The results of a major European trial demonstrate that radiotherapy given after surgical removal of the prostate substantially improves survival will be presented.

  • The remarkable results from a European-American study in patients with head and neck cancer. A new drug, Cetuximab (an antibody against a receptor on cell membranes), when given concomitantly with radiotherapy leads to a 13% higher survival rate after 3 years. With this trial the proof of principle is established and demonstrates that the use of "smart drugs" will lead to improvements in cure rates. The design of such smart drugs is bas
