ASCO abstracts to go on line at 5:00 p.m. Eastern on May 14


According to a statement made by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) this afternoon, the abstracts for papers being presented at the 50th annual meeting of ASCO will be posted on the meeting web site at 5:00p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, May 14 upcoming.

At the same exact time, ASCO plans to hold a 1 hour-long, free webcast at which senior ASCO members will discuss some of the cancer research news to be presented in Chicago between May 30 and June 3 this year. In particular, from a prostate cancer perspective, they will discuss a presentation entitled “An analysis exploring the impact of delaying androgen deprivation therapy among advanced prostate cancer patients with rising PSA levels” (Abstract no. 5003, when the abstracts actually become available).

Patient advocates who are interested in listening to the ASCO web cast can apparently register by clicking here.
