Pediatric Neuro-oncology is a sparkly developing field. Brain tumors are the fountainhead of cancer-related deaths aimed children. Brain disorders are the most common solid malignancy in children.  Their bodies and brains are still developing, their tumors are different. The communal, childhood brain cancers are not the same as the most common adult brain cancers. Though they are sparse, brain tumors are very common form of solid tumors among children under the age of 15 and illustrate, about 20% of all childhood cancers. 

 

Childhood tumors frequently appear in different locations and behave contradictory than brain tumors appearing in adults. Treatment options are different and can be vigorous pressurize by the age of the child.  Children suffering from brain cancer may also occupy a much better prognosis than adults with a similar zone. The regular types of brain tumors in infants and children  are Neurofibromatosis, Primitive Neuroectodermal tumor, Blood Cancer, Neuroblastoma, Medulloblastoma, Ependymoma and Astrocytoma.

 

Survival range for brain tumors vary widely superlatively on the type of tumor and other factors, including age. Five-year survival rates range from 66% for toddler; ages 0 - 19 years to 5% for adults age 75 years and older. Advancements in treatment have dramatically

multiply survival rates for children with brain tumors. About 75% of children survive at least 5 years after being pronounced with a brain tumor. Brain cancers account for about 15% of pediatric cancers and are the second most common vintage of cancer in children. The specific treatment and prognosis depends on the grade, type, and location of the tumor. Depending on the genre of tumor and the timeliness of  pronouncement , the 5 year survival growth rate is 40-80%.

Why Australia?

 Malignant brain tumors and other central nervous system cancers represent highly challenging and devastating group of cancers. While the incidence of brain cancer is relatively low, mortality is high with the most recently reported 5-year survival rates at ~19–35% in Australia, United Kingdom, and America. The population of 23.6 million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated in the eastern states and on the coast.

In Australia Every year about 2000 people are effected with brain and spinal cord tumors including children. Every year about 1,400 malignant brain Tumors are diagnosed in Australia. About 100 of these cases in Children. About 80 people are diagnosed with other Malignant Central nervous system tumors, including malignant and spinal tumors, about in five of these are children. Patients diagnosed with glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of glioma, their prognosis remains poor with the majority of patients dying from the disease within the two years of diagnosis.

Effect of Neuro Oncology across the Globe:

The incidence rate of all primary malignant and non-malignant brain and CNS tumors is 21.42 cases per 100,000 for a total count of 343,175 incident tumors; (7.25 per 100,000 for malignant tumors for a total count of 115,799 incident tumors and 14.17 per 100,000 for non-malignant tumors for a total count of 227,376 incident tumors). The rate is higher in females (23.26 per 100,000 for a total count of 198,212 incident tumors) than in males (19.42 per 100,000 for a total count of 144,963 incident tumors).

Dear Colleagues

As a member of the Organizing Committee it is my pleasure to invite you to attend Neuro-oncology and Brain tumour 2016 in Brisbane, Australia. The field of Neuro-Oncology is unlimited with the help of Associations of neurooncology and brain tumour Societies.since it also covers neurological complications of systemic cancers. Paraneoplastic Neurological Syndromes represent an intriguing model of interaction between the immune system and tumours and could make an interesting contribution to knowledge of the aetiopathogenesis of tumour development and neuroimmunological disorders.

The time is right to review the state of the art of PNS at both a clinical and immunopathological level.

We look forward to bringing new knowledge to the table in Brisbane.

Vice President

Italian Society of Neurology

Dear Delegates,

As a member of the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Neuro-oncology and Brain tumour (July 21-22,2016) at Brisbane, Australia, I am honored  to welcome you to this important event.

Neuro-oncology and Brain tumour  is a very complex field, where multi-disciplinarity is the leading word and it represents the only way to effectively tackle important and still unmet medical needs, such as treatment of brain tumors and management of treatment-related side effects. Innovative treatments, advances in neuro-imaging, improvement in the knowledge of cancer biology, palliative care and preclinical models will be among the main topics of the congress.

My field of research is focused on the side effect of chemotherapy on the peripheral nervous system, a small aspect of neuro-oncology. However, as a neurologist I am well aware of the relevance of the problems more broadly related to the diagnosis and care of brain tumor patients, and of the need of an intensive collaboration with neurosurgeons, radiotherapist, oncologist as well as other healthcare providers in order to optimize our efforts and to maximize their results.

This meeting is intended to allow you, irrespective to your personal expertise, to share opinions and to contact expert in all the multiple aspects of modern neuro-oncology. To this aim several tracks have been identified and the meeting program will be designed in order to facilitate contacts with the several opinion leaders who will guarantee the highest possible scientific level to each session or workshop.

I do really hope you will join us in Brisbane to bring us your knowledge and to learn more on the most up-to-date aspects of the different facets of Neuro-oncology.

 

With best regards

Guido Cavaletti

President, Italian Peripheral Nerve Society
