2nd Polish-German Congress of Integrative Caner Therapy, Frankfurt am Main 22 – 23 April 2016

Congress organisers:
Dr med. Janusz Vorreiter, Dr Marzanna Nasiłowska, Andreas Pezold

Dear Colleagues,

The first Congress of Integrative Cancer Therapy, which took place in November 2015, received great interest from the numerous Polish participants. Responding to their wish, the second Congress was organised, which includes subjects concerning the scope of cancer diagnostics and therapy. The main topic at ASCO 2015, the most globally acknowledged international oncology congress, which was attended by 30,000 people, was the immunotherapy for cancer diseases. The subjects of lectures from that congress have been used as guidelines in the selection of our presentations, since the immunotherapy is a breakthrough and an innovative approach in oncology. We have received outstanding papers and proposals of interesting lectures showing recent research results, concerning strengthening of immune system of an individual, which has a positive impact on life quality and lifespan of people with cancer. We will also present the state-of-the-art methods of cancer treatment in conventional medicine. Following WHO prognosis, by 2030, the cancer incident rate shall double in comparison to the present number of 14,000,000 diagnosed. Keeping that in mind, it is necessary in the interest of patients to undertake actions, which will integrate verified treatment methods. We may refer to the statement of Max Weber, a German philosopher, who said to his students: “If you do not choose a profession, which is your passion, you will live your life in vain”. From that point of view, we are ready to participate in the efforts to face new therapeutic challenges courageously in our daily medical practice. We are happy to welcome you all.
