Congress on Gastric Cancer in Prague under German – Czech organisation

Thanks to the German – Czech cooperation during the candidacy in Brazil this year, the Prague Congress Centre will welcome approximately 2000 participants for the 13th International Gastric Cancer Congress (IGCC 2019) in spring 2019. Having one of the most beautiful historical bridges, the famous Charles Bridge, Prague is a destination for symbolical building bridges in the field of gastric cancer. This disease continues to be a major health problem regardless of world region. 

Almost 1 million patients are diagnosed with gastric cancer per year and 750 000 die from this illness. Fortunately, research on gastric cancer is quickly developing. New insights into tumor biology and progress in health care allow more precise diagnostics and therefore effective treatment. The International Gastric Cancer Association organising biennially IGCC, provides an international forum for the advancement of research of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gastric cancer. The official support and commitment for IGCC 2019 has been promised by European Organization of Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) and European Society of Digestive Oncology (ESDO).  

“Prague’s meeting is planned to connect the traditional medical standards with the new and innovative approaches to diagnose and treat gastric cancer, including novel molecular, imaging and robotic techniques which allow for more precision and better treatment outcomes”, says prof. Petra Tesarova, the Congress Secretary of IGCC 2019.  

Germany has one of the best reputations in the treatment of gastric cancer worldwide. Therefore, the mutual collaboration between Czech and German oncologic communities promises an extraordinary meeting. This two sided approach brings a new experience for the C-IN company, which will provide IGCC 2019 with full PCO services. After the participation on candidacy in Brazil, the C-IN team is looking forward to further cooperation with prof. Petra Tesarova and prof. Florian Lordick.
