XIIIth Annual Conference on
Evidence Based Management of Cancers in India
Dear All
The Tata Memorial Centre cordially invites you to the 13th conference
on “Evidence Based Management of Cancers in India- EBM 2015” to
be held from 27th February to 1st March 2015. This three day meeting
will merge with the “Hospital Day Celebration” which will
be held on 28th Feb. 2015. The Tata Memorial Hospital has pioneered
the cause of EBM in Oncology in India and has been conducting the
annual meeting on EBM in cancers for the past twelve years.
Each year we have focused on different aspect of cancer care;
collated and published the best available evidence in the form of
“EBM book” which is available on our website. This meeting helps
busy clinicians from all over the country and abroad to get updated on
the best available evidence in oncology to potentially improve
patient care. This year we will be focusing on Modern practices in
Radiation Oncology, Molecular Haematology and Cardio – Oncology.
Renowned international and national faculty members will cover the
above topics in a very focused and succinct manner. The target
audience for the meeting is radiation oncologist, pathologists,
hematooncologists, physicians, medical, surgical oncologist, basic
scientist, researchers and residents training in any of the specialties.
We look forward to welcoming you at this annual event.

Molecular Haematology : Laboratory Testing for
Myeloid Malignancies
Hematology has always been at the forefrontof identifying the genetic
basis of diseases including cancers. Today, medical oncologists and
hematologists rely heavily upon molecular information for routine
management of haematolgical malignancies. As a result of this
encouraging scenario the last few years have seen increasing evidence
that has addressed laboratory issues pertaining to molecular
haematology such as appropriate testing, optimal time points for
testing, assay setup for diagnosis and monitoring, criteria for analysis
and reporting of generated data. Today, we have data not just on when
to suspect resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) but also on the
methodology to test for resistance and identify TKI mutations that are
clinically relevant. We also know that it is of paramount importance to
test for structural abnormalities as well as acquired somatic mutations
in acute myeloid leukemia. However, even in today's era of targeted
therapies, there is no such literature from India, which has addressed
diagnostic and monitoring methodologies and interpretation of
molecular results.
The goal of this meeting is to review current evidence and formulate
guidelines for molecular testing in hematological malignancies with a
focus on the common myeloid neoplasms such as chronic myeloid
leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia and acute promyelocytic leukemia.
This meeting will be the first of its kind in India to address laboratory
issues pertaining to testing and interpretation of molecular knowledge
and will include national and international experts. We expect to
generate evidence-based algorithms for molecular& cytogenetic
testing which shall be easily applicable in Indian setting. We also have a
one-day workshop covering basics of molecular diagnostics that will be
conducted by international and national speakers
Program Highlights
EBM 2015 (27th, 28th February 2015)
