CME Dinner Meeting ~ Multimodality Approaches to the Treatment of Head Neck Cancer

Advances in the understanding of molecular biology and immunology (including virology) are occurring at a rapid pace and require dissemination of new findings in order to optimize clinical outcomes. Head and neck cancer is now considered 2 major diseases, one arising in smokers with/without the addition of alcohol abuse, the other resuling from infection with selected oncogenic human papilloma viruses. While their natural histories vary somewhat, HPV-associated disease generally more favorable than smoking-related disease, both groups have serious gaps in the achievement of satisfactory treatment outcomes. This session will address the rapidly-changing field of research and its application to the similarly-changing landscape of diagnostics and treatments for these malignancies.
