Conference Series LLC Ltd is organizing Women Oncology Conference in 2020 at Atlanta, USA. We organize Oncology Meetings in the fields related to Oncology , Cancer Therapeutics, Medical Approaches, Translational Oncology, Computational Technologies, etc.,
Sessions & Tracks
Oncology is a branch of medicine that researches, identifies and treats cancers. A physician who deals with oncology is regarded as oncologist.
Clinical Research in Women’s Oncology:
Clinical research is a branch of medical science that empowers Researchers & Physicians to discover new and better approaches to comprehend, identify, control & treat human illness. A clinical research study is designed to answer specific questions about possible new treatments or new ways of using existing treatments.
The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) divides clinical research into three main categories:
Patient-oriented research. Conducted with humans or on material of human origin, such as tissues and specimens. It includes mechanisms of human disease, therapeutic interventions, clinical trials and development of new technologies.
Epidemiologic and behavioral studies. Examine the distribution of disease, the factors that affect people’s health and how people make health-related decisions.
Outcomes research and health services research. Endeavor to identify the most effective and most efficient interventions, treatments and services.
Prognosis & Pathophysiology:
In Medical terminology Prognosis is related to estimate the probability or risk of an individual developing a particular state of health over a specific time, based on his or her clinical & Non- clinical profile. The main motto of Prognosis research is to determine the probability of the specified outcome with different combinations of predictors in well-defined populations. Prognosis research requires multivariable approaches to design and analysis and the best design to address the Prognostic questions is a cohort study.
Pathophysiology is the study of deranged function in an individual or an organ due to a disease. It deals with the causes of diseases and dynamics disease processes.
Epidemiology of Women Cancer:
The word Epidemiology is originated from the Greek words, epi-upon, demos-people, and logos- the study of. According to Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Epidemiology is defined as the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related states or events in specified populations, and the application of this study to control of health problems.
Breast cancer is a disease characterized when the cells in the breast becomes abnormal and multiply uncontrollably. These cells usually form a tumor which is visible on an X-ray or felt as a lump. If left untreated the tumor cells may eventually spread beyond the original tumor to other parts of the body.
Breast cancer can start from different parts of the breast. Most breast cancers begin in the duct that carries milk to the nipple.
Types of breast cancers:
Invasive breast cancer:
In this type, the tumor cells breakthrough normal breast tissue barriers and spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstreams and lymph nodes.
Non-invasive breast cancer:
In this type, the tumor cells remains in particular location of the breast without spreading to the other parts of the body.
Triple Negative Breast Cancer:
In women with triple- negative breast cancer, the malignant cells do not contain receptors for estrogen, progesterone or HER2. Breast cancer that is negative with estrogen, progesterone cannot be treated with hormone therapies. But, can be treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy.
Gynecologic cancers are the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells originates in the woman’s reproductive organs.
The five main type of gynecologic cancer are:
Lung cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the lungs. There are two types of lung cancers which grow and spread differently.
Small-cell lung cancer:
Small-cell lung cancer represents about 15-20% of lung cancers. It grows and spreads faster.
Non-small lung cancer:
Non-small lung cancer is the most common type of lung cancer. 30% of these start in the cells that form the lining of the body’s cavities and surfaces. This type usually forms in the outer parts of the lungs and another 30% begins in cells that line the passages of the respiratory tract.
Reproductive Health Issues:
As defined by the World Health Organization (WHO):
It addresses the reproductive processes, functions & systems at all stages of life. Reproductive health, therefore, implies that people are able to have a responsible, satisfying sex life and that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so.
Immunotherapy & Stem cell therapy:
Immunotherapy also called as Biological therapy, is a cancer treatment that uses substances made from body’s own immune system or in a laboratory to improve or restore immune system to fight against cancer.
There are several types of Immunotherapy, including:
Oncolytic Virus therapy
Stem cell therapy:
Stem cell transplants are procedures that restore blood forming stem cells in people who have had theirs destroyed by the very high doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy that are used to treat cancer.
Radiotherapy is the medical use of ionizing radiation as a part of cancer treatment to control malignant cells. Radiotherapy is commonly used to for the treatment of malignant tumors, and may be used as a primary therapy. It is also common to combine radiotherapy with surgery/chemotherapy and/or hormone therapy. The precise treatment intent will depend on the tumor type, location, stage, as well as the general health of the patient.
Chemotherapy & Chemotherapeutic agents:
As a part of body’s natural process, cells are constantly replaced through a process of dividing and growing. When cancer occurs, cells reproduce in an uncontrolled manner. To impair, or prevent cell division Chemotherapy drugs are used. The term chemotherapy refers to the drugs that prevent cancer cells from dividing & growing.
Surgery and radiation therapy remove, kill, or damage cancer cells in a certain area, but chemo can work throughout the whole body. This means chemo can kill cancer cells that have spread (metastasized) to parts of the body far away from the original (primary) tumor.
There are 4 major categories of chemotherapeutic agents:
An Oncology Nurse provides care for cancer patients and those at risk for getting the disease. They monitor physical conditions, prescribe medication, and administer chemotherapy and other treatments.
The oncology nurse must be able to understand pathology results and their implications, and have an in-depth knowledge of the expected side effects of cancer treatments. The oncology nurse must also use her interpersonal skills to listen to the patient, assessing their understanding of the disease and its process as well as the patient’s emotional state.
According to the Precision Medicine Initiative, precision medicine is “an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person.”
The difference between a traditional shrewd assessment of a complex situation and true “precision medicine” is the degree of reliance on data – especially genomic data – to make decisions about specific treatment paths that may be more or less effective for the individual at hand.
