Symposium objectives

C. Sessa and F. André offer a preview of the 2nd ESMO Signalling Pathways Symposium, a unique opportunity for clinicians to: get a deeper knowledge of the pathway across different diseases; learn the rationale behind targeted drugs and study pre-clinical data already available; review current indications and understand efficacy and side-effects issues.

  • To provide a basic introduction in the preclinical data relevant for the understanding of functional mechanisms in the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway
  • To understand basic concepts of translating preclinical observations in the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signalling into cancer clinics
  • To provide an essential update on different aspects important for rational clinical development of the PI3K/AKT/mTOR inhibitors
  • To elaborate from the clinical perspective, in a range of malignant diseases, on recent achievements and the data from currently ongoing clinical trials in targeting all axes of the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway
