The article presents information on a cancer symposium for the practitioners. Identification of disease-specific molecular markers enables one to refine diagnostic methods and design rational therapy. The key objective of the current symposium is to discuss how recent advances in molecular pathogenesis and targeted therapy have been incorporated into current clinical practice and provide the latest approach to the diagnosis and treatment of specific malignancies. The series is scheduled to be published during the next 2 years with each month featuring 1 specific cancer type.
