Summary of proceedings, 12th St Gallen Breast Cancer Conference 2011

Dr Christoph Rageth  of the Brustzentrum in Zurich  has sent me his summary of the proceedings at this year’s St Gallen breast cancer conference. The 12th Breast Cancer Conference, which is also known as the Consensus Conference, took place in St Gallen from 16-19 March 2011. Together with the annual congresses in San Antonio (San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium) and principally Chicago (ASCO – American Society of Clinical Oncology), as well as the biennial European Congress (2010 in Barcelona; 2012 in Vienna), the biennial St Gallen conference is ranked among the most important in the world. The reason for this is that on the last day of the congress, fifty of the best known specialists in the world (medical oncologists, surgeons, radiotherapy specialists, researchers) vote on the most burning topics relating to breast cancer treatment.
