APCCC 2019 – Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference
Overview of APCCC
In advanced prostate cancer, rapid and successful drug development has resulted in multiple treatment options that require careful decision-making for individual patients. Clinicians face the increasingly difficult task of choosing from multiple potentially effective treatments that also are costly and potentially toxic. Further developments in novel next-generation imaging methods, biomarkers, molecular characterization, and genetic assays have led to many open questions and areas for which there is sparse or low-level evidence to support clinical decision-making.
The Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) was initiated to provide a forum to discuss and debate current questions on the clinical management of men with advanced prostate cancer, with a special focus on these unclear situations. Two days of the conference are dedicated to high-level presentations, discussions, and debates to summarize and conceptualize the available literature and evidence.
The conference concludes with voting by an interdisciplinary expert panel on pre-defined consensus questions targeting areas of clinical relevance. Following the conference, a manuscript with these expert recommendations is published in a peer-reviewed journal (Annals of Oncology in 2015; European Urology in 2017).

ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit
The ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit on 12-14 September 2019 in Brussels, Belgium will bring together worldwide leaders from cancer care, research, patient advocacy and public-private sectors in a unique multi-stakeholder forum. The theme of the second edition of the ECCO Summit is: “European Cancer Care: Across Borders”.
Reaching the 70:35 Vision for cancer – 70% long term survival for all cancer patients across Europe by 2035 – requires breaking down the borders of cancer care: between countries, professions, sectors and stakeholders.
The ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit will:
- Debate leading-edge ideas in achieving improvement in cancer care
- Determine consensus resolutions for improving health care systems
- Decide on an action plan for the way forward to ensure ideas translate into policies that will impact daily clinical practice
