ESMO 2016

Event Date: 08 OCTOBER

The annual congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) took place on 7–11 October 2016 at the Bella Center, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Boehringer Ingelheim hosted a satellite symposium entitled ‘Update in NSCLC treatment: Applying the evidence to clinical practice’. The meeting was chaired by Anders Mellemgaard, with presentations given by Vanesa Gregorc, Luis Paz-Ares and Glenn Goss. The interactive format of the meeting was aimed to facilitate discussion of the latest data in NSCLC treatment in the context of real-world patient cases.

For more details of the symposium please see below.

Of a special note, Boehringer Ingelheim presented overall survival data from phase IIb trial LUX-Lung 7 and the results from the phase III LUME-colon 1 study. In addition to those, five posters were presented during the poster display sessions. See below for further details.
