Cancer Research 2019
The EuroSciCon will be organizing the Cancer Research 2019 which is going to be held from October 14-16, 2019 in Las Vegas, USA, focusing on current and future Research in Cancer science. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Expanding Horizons in Cancer Research : New approaches for Cancer treatment & a win over Cancer”, which will provide an international platform for discussion and sharing the advancements in the Cancer Science research for present and future expansions in various fields of Cancer . World-leading Oncologist, Health practitioners, educators and researchers will present their novel research and provide an insight to the current research and future expansions in Cancer Science.
Cancer Research 2019 includes international attendee workshops, Lectures, Symposia and Exhibitions. We welcome the world leading experts in the field of Oncology and Cancer Science, who will be sharing their research and will be discussing about advancements and current research in Cancer. So, come and join leading experts and allied professionals from October 14-16, 2019 in Las Vegas, USA.
About Las Vegas, USA
Las Vegas is the largest cite in the state Nevada, in USA. It is also known as the city of entertainment. It is located in Southern Nevada. Located on the Strip, Paris Las Vegas is one of the most easily recognized resorts in the city. Las Vegas in Spanish means "water meadows", at the same time the name of the state, where the city is situated — Nevada — can be translated as "snow-covered". Nevada state also has many Cancer institutes like, Nevada Cancer Institute, Women’s Cancer Center of Nevada.
So, come and join us in Las Vegas, a shining city that never sleeps!!!
Sessions & Tracks
Cancer is a disease that leads to abnormal growth of a cell and has the potential to spread to different parts of body. Whereas, in case of benign tumors, they do not spread to the body, but remain at specific part only. There are many types of Cancer including, Skin Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Lung Cancer, Stomach Cancer, etc.
Causes of Cancer
Signs and Symptoms of Cancer
Cancer could be treated by various methods including, surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy. The choice of treatment depends on the type of cancer, which stage the cancer is and the location as well. Use of precise medicines sometime, could also be used for cancer treatment which help us to identify genetic changes in the patient are, and which leads to selective treatment methods.
Anticancer drug is also known as Antineoplastic drug. It is effective for cancerous cell treatment. Alone anti cancerous drug could be used to treat Cancer or along with the combination of Surgery, Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy. The use of Anti-drug medicine depends on the type of cancer involved. For example, for Prostate Cancers, drugs that inactivate androgens (male sex hormone) could be used. Examples of some of the anticancer drugs are, Altretamine, Bleomycin, Busulfan.

Types of Cancer
There are many types of Cancer out of which some common types of Cancer include, Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Lung Cancer, Skin Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Lymphoma, Pancreatic Cancer. The major cause of Lung Cancer includes higher smoking rates, which directly affect the lungs.
Stem Cell & Cancer Research
Stem cell transplants include process that restores the blood-forming stem cells in people who have had destroyed their cells by the very high doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy that were used to treat certain cancers. Different types of Stem cell Transplants include Autologous, Allogeneic and Syngeneic

Biomarkers are those molecules which serve as indicator for the processes that may occur in a body for a disease for which the patient has been diagnosed. Cancer Biomarkers are those biological molecules that may help to detect if a person is having Cancer. Some major examples of Biomarkers that has been used for diagnosis of cancer are, ER/PR (Used for Breast Cancer), Eml4/ALK (used for Lung Cancer)

Availability of Cancer Biomarkers
Cancer immunology helps us to understand the response of the immune system while the cancer progression has begun to occur. Cancer immunotherapy utilizes the immune system for treating the cancer. Cancer immunotherapy proves to be more effecting, lost lasting and more specific as compared to other methods.

Oncology Nurse is a Specialist who take cares of Cancer patients. Oncology nursing care could be defined as the special care and completing the needs of patients during the time of their disease, while may involve some screening methods and preventive measures that should be taken care of.

Cancer Screening at the earliest stage of Cancer helps to cure the cancer at the very earliest stage of Cancer. Cancer Diagnosis include tests such as, Physical examination, which may be visible (abnormalities such as lumps, change in skin color or enlarged organ). It also includes, Laboratory tests, Imaging or Biopsy.

Molecular Mechanism of Cancer
Cancer generally occurs due to a damage that has been caused to DNA. Genes that regulate the cell division, generally get mutated, due to which their control to cell division is hampered. And thus, result of which is uncontrolled cell division, which then leads to cancer. So, to control cancer ( uncontrolled cell division) genes which has lost their ability to act under such conditions, should be activated.
Tumor Suppressor Genes
Cancer due to Mutations
Non- mutagenic cancer
Eating health foods can prevent cancer. Cancer could be cured to some extent if a patient follows good and health diet, which generally includes fruits and raw green leafy vegetables. Some of which includes, Apple, Papaya, Banana, Carrots, Tomatoes, etc which have high antioxidant properties, and thus a potential to cure cancer.
Food as a source to prevent Cancer
Can fruits and vegetables really be the good source to prevent cancer ?
Stages of Cancer
There are 4 Stages of Cancer, which include Stage 0 (There is no cancer, but some abnormal cells that may give rise to cancerous cells) Stage 1 (Cancer is located in small area) Stage 2 & 3 (Cancer has spread to larger area including tissues and lymph nodes), Stage 4 (Cancer has spread to many parts of the body)
Different Stages of Cancer
Reoccurrence of Cancer
Local & Malignant Cancer
Various treatment measures at different stages of cancer
Causes of Cancer
Majority of the Cancers take place due to genetic changes, which occurs due to mutagens (cancer-causing agents). Chemical such as, Nitrosamines could act as a potential Mutagen. Ionizing and Non-ionizing radiations both lead to cancer. Examples include; UV rays, X-rays.
According to the National Cancer Institute, the second leading cause of death is Cancer in the US. Information and education about Cancer are the key to cancer prevention, early detection of Cancer and to have the best treatment options.
Food Habits and Cancer
Cancer Research Awareness
Cancer Research helps to identify causes, and develop strategies for prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. Cancer Research could involved Scientists from Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Physiology or Molecular background.

Future of Cancer Research
Cancer occurs due to uncontrolled growth of cells. In Dysplasia a cell differs from the normal parent cell in size and shape. Metaplasia is the starting stage of Dysplasia. In Hyperplasia the cell count increases.

Microorganism’s & Cancer
Many microbes are known to cause cancer, examples of which include, Helicobacter pylori, known to cause as gastric cancer, and Agrobacterium tumefaciens, known to cause crown gall in plants. Live bacteria and some of the bacterial products could be a future perspective to treat cancer.

Side effects of Cancer Treatment
There are various type of side effects of Cancer Treatments, depending on the type of Cancer caused. For example chemotherapy causes anemia, constipation, fatigue, hair loss.

Cancer & Oncology Case Reports
Case Reports are detailed report of the patient who has been diagnosed with the disease. This report includes signs & symptoms, diagnosis, treatment methods of that particular patient. Some of the case reports may contain a Review of Literature of previous reported cases of some patients.
