Over 300 international participants attended the scientific meeting “100 years Ewing Sarcoma: Learnings from the past, Challenges for the future”.
Over the course of the two-day conference, we took a look on what has been achieved in Ewing Sarcoma so far, what the Status Quo of Ewing management currently is and where the future might take us.
The meeting will be held to honor the “Cancer Man” James Ewing, who did not only describe the “Ewing Sarcoma” but was a founder of what is today the American Cancer Society and laid the foundation of today`s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre. He was an oncologist by heart. This meeting was a great opportunity to come together and reflect upon the past in Ewing Sarcoma but also look towards the future as a global community.

Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant (cancerous) bone tumor that affects children. Ewing's sarcoma can occur any time during childhood and young adulthood, but usually develops during puberty, when bones are growing rapidly. The tumor often spreads (metastasis) to the lungs and other bones. Metastasis at the time of diagnosis is present in approximately one third of children with Ewing's sarcoma. Ewing's sarcoma only rarely occurs in adults and never over 50 years of age.
Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) affects the digestive tract or nearby structures within the abdomen. The most common location is the stomach. GI stromal tumor, or GIST cancer, is a sarcoma.
