The Big C [What's New in the Diagnosis & Treatment of Cancer]
This seminar provides an update and overview of the pathophysiology of cancer–how it starts, how it spreads, the role of oncogenes, the role of the environment (viruses, hormones, chemicals, etc.), the role of inflammation (gastritis, colitis, esophagitis, hepatitis) as well as many other facts and tidbits about the growth and differentiation of cells. The terms hyperplasia, metaplasia, and dysplasia will also be explained as "fertile soils for
cancer" development. Tumor markers and other markers (Estrogen receptors, HER-2, PSA, CEA, BRCA1 and BRCA2) and their use for diagnosis and treatment purposes will also be included. The exciting new drug classes for the treatment of cancer will also be described: the "mabs", the "nibs", and more. Specific cancers to be discussed include breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, hematologic malignancies, brain tumors and GI cancers. [5 CE hours]
