A NEW transatlantic alliance has formed to fight breast cancer, with the US-based charity Susan G Komen for the Cure giving its support to the IMPAKT breast cancer conference, co-organized by the breast international group and the European society for medical oncology (ESMO).

Komen is the world’s “largest source of non-profit funds for the fight against breast cancer”. To help accelerate the search for cures for breast cancer, it will fund young cancer doctors from less affluent countries to attend the IMPAKT meeting where world leaders in translational research will discuss cutting-edge treatments that are now moving from laboratories into the clinical setting.

Komen will also support ESMO research fellowships in preeminent cancer centers in western Europe to offer doctors from eastern European countries the opportunity to learn the newest technologies and bring them back to their home institutes.

“As breast cancer knows no borders, neither can our fight to end it,” said Nancy Brinker, founder of the charity.

“And so we must work together - as we’re doing here from nearly 70 countries - as one united global breast cancer community. We need to put cancer at the top of the global health agenda. With the resources and resolve to prevent the preventable, treat the treatable, cure the curable, and provide palliative care for those in need.”

The IMPAKT (improving care and knowledge through translational research) meeting brings together seven partners, representing leading oncology, research and cancer advocacy networks involved in breast cancer in Europe.

“We are very pleased that Komen has decided to support IMPAKT in this way,” said José Baselga, co-chair of the meeting.

“Our aim is to help develop new treatments for breast cancer patients worldwide. The best hope of achieving this is by creating the largest possible network of breast cancer specialists to share their information, resources and findings.”

The first IMPAKT meeting, 7-9 May 2009 in Brussels, Belgium, was designed to present and discuss advances in translational research and ways to quickly transform laboratory discoveries into tools that clinicians can use to help make decisions about the way they treat patients in their daily practice.
