HATFIELD, England, October 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --





- INVITATION FOR EUROPEAN AND ASIAN 

JOURNALISTS ONLY - 

There is a major need for improved treatment options for radioiodine refractory differentiated thyroid cancer, an aggressive, difficult-to-treat cancer with poor prognosis and 10-year survival rates of only 15%.

This virtual press event will give you the opportunity to hear about the key role of lenvatinib in thyroid cancer from two experts in the field and give you exclusive access to them for direct questions and one-to-one interviews.

Professor Martin Schlumberger, University Paris Sud, France, will provide an overview of the key Lenvatinib Phase III data at ITC and focus on the effect of lenvatinib across different metastatic sites.

Dr Rosella Elisei, Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Section of Endocrinology, University of Pisa, Italy, will provide an overview of the SELECT trial including key results and trial design.

The Official ASCO Press Conference will take place on Saturday, May 31, 8:00-9:00 (CST)
