5th ESO-ESMO Advanced Breast Cancer (ABC5) International Consensus Conference

The International Consensus Conference for Advanced Breast Cancer (ABC) has established itself as a major international breast cancer conference. Its primary aim is the development of international consensus guidelines for the management of ABC patients. These guidelines are based on the most up-to-date evidence and can be used to guide treatment decision making in many different health care settings globally, with the necessary adaptations due to different access to care.

We believe that health professionals working closely together with patient advocates and with the strong support of media can raise awareness about the needs and challenges faced by this traditionally underserved and forgotten group of patients. ABC also aims to identify research priorities based on the most important areas of unmet need, analyse and discuss available data to provide the most accurate management recommendations, as well as influence policy makers and funding bodies and ultimately improve standards of care, survival and quality of life. Research and education, with accurate usage of available knowledge, throughout the world, are key to achieve these goals.

Theresa’s Research Foundation’s MBC Conference

The mission of this conference is to bring together a diverse audience to create a collaborative research environment with a long term goal of developing curative approaches for metastatic breast cancer patients.

Background:

The Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference was established in 2014 as an annual medical conference for metastatic breast cancer by Theresa’s Research Foundation with leadership from Dr. Matthew Ellis and Dr. Danny Welch. The specific focus on metastatic disease is based on a major unmet clinical need (incurability); thereby distinguishing this conference from other breast cancer-centered conferences. The first conference was hosted at the University of Kansas Cancer Center. In 2015, 2016 and 2017 the MBCC was hosted at Baylor College of Medicine. The 2018 Conference was held at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Additional leadership is provided by Dr. Xiang Zhang and the conference planning committee.

FDA-ASCO Public Workshop: 2019 Clinical Outcome Assessments in Cancer Clinical Trials

The one-day workshop will bring together international regulators, payers, industry, academia, and patients to advance the science of clinical outcome assessments – measuring how patients feel and function.

Improving how we quantify how patients experience symptoms and their impact on important functional outcomes is a critical addition to standard endpoints of survival and tumor measures. This year’s workshop will explore how physical function assessment can be incorporated into oncology trials and analyzed for regulatory decision making, with the goal of generalizing what can be learned to other forms of clinical assessments. There will be sessions on:

  • Exploring the value of electronic PRO assessment to facilitate learning healthcare systems
  • Systematically defining research objectives and framing questions using the estimand framework
  • Efforts to standardize an analysis framework for physical function in medical product review and labeling
  • Generalizing physical function learnings.
