Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure that, following the great success reached during the previous two editions, I am pleased to announce that the 3rd International Meeting on New Drugs in Breast Cancer will be held in Rome at the Regina Elena National Cancer Institute, on November 14-15, 2013.

Breast cancer represents a continuing challenge to physicians and patients. A better understanding of breast cancer biology has produced great improvement in the treatment (cure, prolongation of survival, palliation of symptoms) based on the availability of novel targeted therapeutics. The speed of these progresses has been very fast also during the past two years.

The Scientific Programme of the Meeting will include topics on Target Therapy, on Chemotherapy and on Hormonal therapy, but also some lectures and video conferences on more general aspects as well as biology of hormonal pathways, adjuvant treatments, prognostic factors or specific items (circulating tumor cells, cancer stem cells, management of small tumors, etc).

The programme was designed in the pursuit of excellence and all lectures will be presented by an international distinguished outstanding faculty which will report all their experiences and developments.

The meeting will take place again in the beautiful city of Rome and I am sure there will be plenty of opportunities for a unique and enjoyable stay in our city.
