Joint DIA/ICOS Conference on Cardiac Toxicity 2014 Prague

  • Conference Call
  • The Joint DIA/​ICOS Con­fer­ence on Car­diac Tox­i­c­ity will held in Prague, Czech Repub­lic on Octo­ber 9 – 10, 2014 at the Dorit Praha Don Gio­vanni Hotel.


    There is a tremen­dous amount of mech­a­nis­tic over­lap between tar­geted can­cer ther­apy and car­dio­vas­cu­lar tis­sues. Impor­tant drugs that may be active on can­cer­ous tis­sues are increas­ingly likely to have sig­nif­i­cant col­lat­eral effects on car­diac tis­sues. Under­stand­ing the under­ly­ing mech­a­nisms and how to detect these prob­lems early and man­age them effec­tively can allow a crit­i­cal drug for can­cer effi­cacy to con­tinue to develop as a clin­i­cal therapy.

    Addi­tion­ally, tai­lor­ing the phar­ma­col­ogy of a poten­tial can­cer ther­a­peu­tic based on known mech­a­nis­tic insights is an essen­tial area of pre­clin­i­cal devel­op­ment. Fur­ther­more, enhanc­ing inter­ac­tions between car­di­ol­ogy and oncol­ogy at all lev­els of clin­i­cal tri­als allows for opti­mal patient outcomes.

    Learn­ing Objectives

    • Describe the best meth­ods of car­diotox­i­c­ity detec­tion dur­ing early phase clin­i­cal trials
    • Under­stand the best man­age­ment approaches to pro­tect­ing car­diac tis­sues dur­ing aggres­sive can­cer therapy
    • Detail known and the­o­rised mech­a­nis­tic actions of devel­op­ing can­cer ther­apy to allow cardioprotection
    • Estab­lish and ensure effec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion between drug devel­op­ers and prescribers
    • Pro­mote opti­mal patient care between car­di­ol­ogy and oncology
