SESSIONS & TRACKS
Cell division could be a traditional method utilized by the body for growth and repair. Healthy cells stop dividing once there's not a requirement for additional female offspring cells; however cancer cells still turn out copies. Cancer cells square measure cells that divide unrelentingly, forming solid tumors or flooding the blood with abnormal cells. Cancer biology deals with these changes and also the molecular networks that management cell proliferation, differentiation and death. The study of varied styles of cancer is termed as medical specialty.
- Cancer metabolomics
- Regenerative cell biology
- Host-pathogen interactions
- Renal Cell Carcinoma
There are several sub-specialties in the field of Oncology. The above mentioned specialties deal with the treatment of cancer through Chemotherapy or Immunotherapy, Biopsies and Radiology respectively.

A stem cell is a cell with the unique ability to develop into specialized cell types in the body. In the future they may be used to replace cells and tissues that have been damaged or lost due to disease.
In stem cell transplants, stem cells replace cells damaged by chemotherapy or disease or serve as a way for the donor's immune system to fight some types of cancer and blood-related diseases, such as leukemia, lymphoma, neuroblastoma and multiple myeloma. These transplants use adult stem cells or umbilical cord blood. Stem cells are not only widely used for regenerative medicine, but are also considered as a useful tool for cancer treatment. For a long time, stem cells have been utilized to renew the immune system for radiation or chemo- therapy treated patients.
The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another part or to lymph nodes, which are not directly connected to each other is called cancer metastasis. Cancer is considered as a deadly disease mainly because of its ability to spread in the body. This metastasis takes place through the blood stream or the lymph system. The most common metastasis parts of the body are the lungs, bones, liver and brain. The metastatic cancer cells does not resemble the feature of the cells where it was found but it resembles the primary cancer cells i.e. it was considered as a next stage of the primary cancer cells. All metastatic cancers are considered as advanced cancers. The cancer survival and treatment is influenced by whether the cancer cells are localized or spreads to other parts. When the cancer starts to spread it is very difficult to control. Even if the treatment is continued, it will be only palliative care. The pain killing will be mostly by Anti-cancer drugs such as chemotherapy. Cancer Management is a multidisciplinary approach that deals with the various type of cancer complications and its preventive measures. Cancer Conferences is an important key for both educational and clinical guidance for managing cancer patients.
Clinical oncologists are doctors who treat patients with a balance of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. They are involved in the management of all types of cancer and use a range of other treatments to treat cancers, without using surgery.
They are different than medical oncologists, who use non-radiological treatments for cancer. Clinical oncologists determine which treatment to use by considering a range of factors such as the type of tumor, tumor site, the stage of the disease and the patient’s general health. They assess the relative merits of different treatments before presenting these to the patient.
Molecular diagnostics can be used to determine whether a person is at risk for a certain type of cancer. When used this way, the tests may also be referred to as molecular profiling or molecular risk assessment. These tests help a person determine how likely he or she is to develop cancer.
Cancer immunology is a stream of immunology that studies communications between the immune system and cancer cells (also called tumors or malignancies). It is a field of research that intent to discover cancer immunotherapies to treat and decelerate evolution of the disease. The human immune system mounts natural endogenous response to foreign cells. The gamut of genetics and epigenetics changes occurring in tumors provides diverse set of antigenic repertoire that host’s immune system can exploit to distinguish tumour versus their normal healthy counterparts.

In biology, cell signaling is part of any communication process that governs basic activities of cells and coordinates multiple-cell actions. The ability of cells to perceive and correctly respond to their microenvironment is the basis of development, tissue repair, and immunity, as well as normal tissue homeostasis. Errors in signaling interactions and cellular information processing may cause diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and diabetes. By understanding cell signaling, clinicians may treat diseases more effectively and, theoretically, researchers may develop artificial tissues.
All cells receive and respond to signals from their surroundings. This is accomplished by a variety of signal molecules that are secreted or expressed on the surface of one cell and bind to a receptor expressed by the other cells, thereby integrating and coordinating the function of the many individual cells that make up organisms. Each cell is programmed to respond to specific extracellular signal molecules. Extracellular signaling usually entails the following steps:
- Synthesis and release of the signaling molecule by the signaling cell.
- Transport of the signal to the target cell.
- Binding of the signal by a specific receptor leading to its activation.
- Initiation of signal-transduction pathways.
Contaminations in the female genitalia and the extra sex organs are regularly known as Gynecologic Infectious Diseases. A portion of the irresistible infections is Vulvovaginitis, Cervicitis, Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases, and Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Gynecologic Oncology is a specific field that arrangements with growths relating to the female genitalia and conceptive framework.

A hematologist-oncologist is a physician, specializes in diagnosing, treatment and prevention of blood diseases and cancers such as iron-deficiency anemia, hemophilia, sickle-cell disease, leukemia and lymphoma. This physician is trained in hematology — the study of blood — and oncology — the study of cancer.
An oncolytic virus is a virus that preferentially infects and kills cancer cells. As the infected cancer cells are destroyed by oncolysis, they release new infectious virus particles or virions to help destroy the remaining tumor. Oncolytic viruses are thought not only to cause direct destruction of the tumor cells, but also to stimulate host anti-tumor immune system responses. The potential of viruses as anti-cancer agents was first realized in the early twentieth century, although coordinated research efforts did not begin until the 1960s. A number of viruses including adenovirus, reovirus, measles, herpes simplex, Newcastle disease virus, and vaccine have been clinically tested as oncolytic agents. Most current oncolytic viruses are engineered for tumor selectivity, although there are naturally occurring examples such as reovirus and the Seneca virus, resulting in clinical trials.

The recent Chinese experience suggests that cancer patients are at higher risk of infection to SARS-CoV-2 compared to the general population, which could be related to the closer medical follow-up organized in such fragile patients. More concerning, the risk of severe respiratory complications requiring intensive care unit was much higher in cancer patients compared to non-cancer patients. A covariate significantly associated with this risk was a history of chemotherapy or surgery in the previous months, a feature that involves the highest number of cancer patients. Finally, the cancer patients deteriorated more rapidly than those without cancer.
Radiology is the medical discipline that uses medical imaging to diagnose and treat diseases within the bodies of both humans and animals. A variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to diagnose or treat diseases. Interventional radiology is the performance of usually minimally invasive medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies such as those mentioned above.
Surgical oncology is the branch of surgery applied to oncology; it focuses on the surgical management of tumors, especially cancerous tumors.
As one of several modalities in the management of cancer, the specialty of surgical oncology, before modern medicine the only cancer treatment with a chance of success, has evolved in steps similar to medical oncology (pharmacotherapy for cancer), which grew out of hematology, and radiation oncology, which grew out of radiology.
Cancer cells keep growing without control. Chemotherapy is drug therapy for cancer. It works by killing the cancer cells, stopping them from spreading, or slowing their growth. However, it can also harm healthy cells, which causes side effects. Cancer can be treated by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy and synthetic lethality.

A multidisciplinary way to deal with redesign has been connected in a variety of settings in clinical oncology, especially among patients with stomach and colorectal malignancy. Cancer has one of the highest mortality rates of all diseases worldwide. As a pre-treatment prior to hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation carried out as a part of treatment for all forms of blood cancer, this drug is contributing to patients as a necessary drug that ranks alongside radiation therapy. Hepatitis B antibody was disease counteractive action antibodies upheld Drug Administration (FDA). Disease treatment immunizations were likewise considered restorative antibodies.

Cancer nanotechnology is a branch of nanotechnology concerned with the application of both nanomaterial (such as nanoparticles for tumor imaging or drug delivery) and nanotechnology approaches (such as nanoparticle-based theranostics) to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Pathologists are among the most important members of a patient’s cancer care team. They work to diagnose and determine the stage of cancer, setting the course for what comes next in the treatment journey. Pathology is the service that handles the blood samples and the cells and tissues removed from suspicious ‘lumps and bumps’. Cancer pathology’s key role in diagnosing and treating a complex disease, it’s important to stay up to date on new technologies and breakthroughs that continue to shape the ever-evolving landscape of cancer care.

Many factors impact the development of cancer. Over the last 25 years, science has displayed that diet,body weight and physical activity —especially being overweight or obese—are leading risk factors for obtaining certain types of cancer. The main behavioral and environmental risk factors for cancer death in the world are related to diet and physical inactivity, use of addictive substances, sexual and reproductive health and exposure to air pollution and use of contaminated needles.
Instruments are designed to aid in the diagnosis, monitoring or treatment of medical conditions. Several new types of equipment are used in the treatment of cancer such as:
Linear Accelerator (LINAC) – It emits radiation of highly localised (X-rays) and it is useful in the treatment of cancer. The 6 MeV linear accelerator having the capability of surface electron allows treating cancer cells even under the subcutis layer overlying the cranium. The patient can also see his activity through the connected display unit.
Gamma Camera – It is used in the detection of cancer via gamma rays. Here tracers used are introduced into the patient’s body intravenously, thus getting the image on the gamma camera as the tracer emits gamma rays which are detected by the gamma camera.
Radiography and Ultrasound – It is a non-invasive way of getting the image of the internal organs by ultrasound. It is a useful method for cancer patients for examining the abdomen for any enlargement of the lymph or masses.

Leukemia, Lymphoma, Germ cell tumors and early stage solid tumors which were once incurable have become curable malignancies now. Immunotherapies have already proven efficient in leukemia, bladder cancer and various skin cancers. For the future, research is promising in the field of physical oncology. Survival of cancer has significantly improved over the past years due to improved screening, diagnostic methods and treatment options with targeted therapy. Large multi-centric Phase III randomized controlled clinical trials by the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast & Bowel Project (NSABP), Medical Research Council (MRC), and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) and National Cancer Institute (NCI) have contributed significantly to the improvement in survival.
As per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic HBV affected almost 1.4 million of the US population in 2011 and acting as major public health challenge. In past couple of years outbreaks for different infections have deteriorated the situation. All these reports direct towards the increasing need for immunological diagnosis and treatment for infections across the world. Therefore the market for this infection oncology may grow with significant rate in near future. On the other hand high cost involved and limited reach of this technology may hinder the growth of the market.
However the growth of the market may be significant in emerging economies in Asia and Africa considering high incidence and prevalence rate for infections. This market can also be segmented according various categories of infections such as hepatitis viruses, retroviruses and other infections. The market has different classes of products used such as reagents, diagnostic kits, instruments and others.

No. of deaths caused by cancer, World 2019 statistics:
Cancer is a generic term for a large group of diseases that can affect any part of the body. Other terms used are malignant tumors and neoplasms. One defining feature of cancer is the rapid creation of abnormal cells that grow beyond their usual boundaries, and which can then invade adjoining parts of the body and spread to other organs, the latter process is referred to as metastasizing. Metastases are a major cause of death from cancer.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, and is responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Globally, about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.
Approximately 70% of deaths from cancer occur in low- and middle-income countries.
Around one third of deaths from cancer are due to the 5 leading behavioral and dietary risks: high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity, tobacco use, and alcohol use.
Tobacco use is the most important risk factor for cancer and is responsible for approximately 22% of cancer deaths.
Cancer causing infections, such as hepatitis and human papilloma virus (HPV), are responsible for up to 25% of cancer cases in low- and middle-income countries.
Late-stage presentation and inaccessible diagnosis and treatment are common. In 2017, only 26% of low-income countries reported having pathology services generally available in the public sector. More than 90% of high-income countries reported treatment services are available compared to less than 30% of low-income countries.
The economic impact of cancer is significant and is increasing. The total annual economic cost of cancer in 2010 was estimated at approximately US$ 1.16 trillion.
Only 1 in 5 low- and middle-income countries have the necessary data to drive cancer policy.
Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2019. The most common cancers are:
- Lung (2.09 million cases)
- Breast (2.09 million cases)
- Colorectal (1.80 million cases)
- Prostate (1.28 million cases)
- Skin cancer (non-melanoma) (1.04 million cases)
- Stomach (1.03 million cases)
- The most common causes of cancer death are cancers of:
- Lung (1.76 million deaths)
- Colorectal (862 000 deaths)
- Stomach (783 000 deaths)
- Liver (782 000 deaths)
- Breast (627 000 deaths)
