Originally, a better response to cancer immunotherapy associated with radiation therapy was registered in NSCLC patients. Later, it became apparent that the same effect could be observed in combined treatment of cancers of other sites as well. Jorge Contreras from Hospital Regional Universitario de Málaga, President of the Spanish Society for Cancer Radiology, will be the key speaker to deliver a talk on this topic at the forum. This is what Professor Sergei Novikov, Chair of the Radiation Therapy Department at the Nikolai Petrov National Medical Research Center of Oncology (Saint Petersburg, Russia), shared with us on this topic.

The Forum “White Nights” helps specialists realize the most important professional aspirations to improve skills and learn from the best, to exchange their knowledge and experience, to communicate with professional soul mates. That is why our Oncology Forum is so popular. It attracts both top experts and young adherents of oncology".
“It all started 15 years ago when our Cancer Center held the first conference “White Nights” dedicated to one localization – breast cancer. However, in 2015 it became clear that we were ready to take the next step. “White Nights” has become an international forum for specialists from all over the world to get together, learn about the latest advances in oncology and raise the quality level of oncology care.”
