Validating Predictive Models and Biomarkers of Radiotherapy Toxicity to Reduce Side-Effects and Improve Quality of Life in Cancer Survivors

El propósito de este estudio internacional es tratar de predecir qué pacientes son más propensos a desarrollar efectos adversos tras la radioterapia

Abstract accepted for ePoster at ASTRO2017!

ASTRO is the American Society For Radiation Oncology. The 59th Annual Meeting,  "The healing art and science of radiation oncology", will be held in San Diego from 24th - 27th September 2017. ASTRO is committed to providing educational programming that creates a forum for global collaboration on issues in radiation oncology to improve professional practice by increasing their level of knowledge, as required to improve competency and performance in the field of oncology.

Annual REQUITE Consortium Meeting June 20-21st, 2017!

The 5th REQUITE Annual Consortium Meeting will be held 20-21st June 2017, hosted by Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO) in Barcelona, Spain. This will be held in conjunction with the International Radiogenomics Consortium annual meeting on 19th June. Many of the researchers involved in the REQUITE project are also part of the Radiogenomics consortium. A good reason to combine both yearly meetings at one moment of the year in the same venue, giving the involved people the opportunity to attend both meetings.

9th Annual Radiogenomics consortium meeting in Barcelona.

The Radiogenomics Consortium was established in November 2009. The scientific hypothesis underlying the development of the consortium is that a cancer patient's likelihood of developing toxicity to radiation therapy is influenced by common genetic variations, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).

The Consortium members undertake collaborative projects to identify SNPs associated with adverse effects following radiotherapy, share data and samples, perform meta-analyses, and work together to submit research grant applications.
