Nearly 100 participants who attended the 2nd SPAEN Annual Conference for organizations representing patients with Sarcomas incl. GIST or Desmoid-Tumours held in Berlin, documented the increasing interest in the disease group of Sarcomas, which is in many European countries a ‘forgotten cancer’, because it is one of the rarest forms of cancer. Among the participants were more than 55 representatives from Sarcoma Patient Advocacy Groups from 14 countries, several European Sarcoma Experts and industry representatives.
SPAEN is currently developing the programme for the 3rd SPAEN Annual Conference. More information will be available by mid of May 2012.
