Abstracts for the EORTC-NCI-AACR Symposium in Berlin go up online on Friday, Oct. 29
The majority of the abstracts to be presented at the EORTC-NCI-AACR  Symposium on "Molecular targets and cancer therapeutics" will go up online two weeks before the meeting at 00.01 hrs CET on Friday 29 October. The Symposium takes place in Berlin on 16-19 November.
Journalists are free to report on the online abstracts from the time that they go up online before the Symposium; however, they should bear in mind that all the abstracts had to be submitted by 15 June, and by the time the research will be presented to the Symposium in November some of the data and results may have changed.
Some abstracts, including late breaking abstracts and those that form part of the media programme, are not being published online before the Symposium begins. They will be published in a supplement abstract book available at the Symposium and will be posted online on the day of their presentation to the meeting; they will be embargoed to 00.01 hrs (CET) on those days.
The online abstracts can be found at: http://www.ecco-org.eu/Conferences-and-Events/EORTC-NCI-AACR-2010/Abstracts-online/page.aspx/2528
