Recently, the systematization of standard treatments for breast cancer and the development of guidelines based on EBM (Evidence-based Medicine), including clinical trials, has been underway in Japan. In this context, a nonprofit organization, Japan Comprehensive Cancer Network, Breast (JCCNB), has translated and published the NCCNiNational Comprehensive Cancer Networkj Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology Version 1.2005, which leading cancer centers in the United States have been developing collaboratively for the past decade. JCCNB has now organized a symposium which will invite experts to participate in the development of these clinical practice guidelines. The invited experts from both the United States and Japan will review features of each guideline and discuss measures for dissemination, clarification and successive improvement of the contents.

 

 

Section 2 (1:30p.m. - 4:30p.m.)

Chairperson: Mr. Katsumasa Kuroi, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Surgery, Showa University Toyosu Hospital Mr. Masakazu Toi, M.D., Ph.D., Director, Breast Unit, Tokyo Metropolitan Komagome Hospital
     
Speaker: Stephen B. Edge, Chair, Breast and Soft Tissue Surgery, Roswell Park Cancer Institute Richard L.

Among breast cancers that reveal various pathological aspects, inflammatory breast cancer is fairly different from typical breast cancer in its uncommon pace and pattern of development. It is an intractable cancer, which is resistant in many cases, and remains a refractory disease in spite of the current advances in various treatments. However, recent basic and clinical studies have been steadily elucidating the biology of breast cancer, providing clues to the clarification of the pathology and a key to the development of new treatment techniques. The Setsuko Tahara Memorial Symposium will focus on inflammatory breast cancer, which is the most formidable type of cancer. Exploring its cutting-edge research and medical treatments, we will discuss and consider future treatments for breast cancer.
