CANCELED - Cancer Treatment Related Cardiotoxicity (Day 1)

Air date: Thursday, September 20, 2012, 8:30:00 AM
Time displayed is Eastern Time, Washington DC Local
Description: Cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity is a leading cause of treatment-associated morbidity and mortality in cancer survivors. The gaps in knowledge related to cardiotoxicity are large, including mechanisms of cardiac injury, clinical prediction, screening, prevention, and treatment, as well as the similarities and differences between cancer induced cardiotoxicity and primary cardiovascular disease. There is an increasing interest in studying cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity by both the cardiology and oncology specialties.

The goal of this conference is to bring together multiple disciplines within cardiology and oncology to identify research priorities in the area of cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity that will inform future NIH initiatives in this important research area.
