Sebastiano Filetti Coordinated Drafting of New Guidelines for Management of Endocrine Tumours
The new guidelines for endocrine tumours were presented at the annual congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) that was held in Barcelona (Spain) on Sept. 27 to Oct. 1, 2019.
ESMO appointed Sebastiano Filetti, Dean of the Sapienza Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and Professor of Internal Medicine at the Department of Translational and Precision Medicine, as coordinator of the multidisciplinary group of European experts, composed of oncologists, endocrinologists, surgeons, nuclear doctors and pathologists, who drafted the new guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment and control of endocrine tumours. The new guidelines are entitled “Thyroid cancer: ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up”.
The guidelines, which will be published on the prestigious Annals of Oncology, will provide a set of indications on thyroid cancer management in the various medical-clinical phases (diagnosis, treatment and follow-up). These are the most updated and complete evidence-based guidelines, at the international level, for this disease.
