New Cancer Strategies: p53
April 21-22, 1996
Washington, DC                  
Co-organized with PharmaGenics
Cosponsored by Canji, Inc, Pharmacia Biotech and PharmaGenics

The p53 gene is recognized as one of the most important genes in the
cancer field.  One role of p53 is to proofread for genetic damage and
eliminate cells in which unrepaired genetic errors appear.
Unfortunately, p53 itself is quite sensitive to point mutations, in
that virtually all mutations lead to a loss of function.  This program
focuses on advances in understanding and use of p53 for diagnostic and
therapeutic purposes.  With approximately half of all cancers
involving the loss of functional p53, the identification of such
mutations can be a significant diagnostic tool.  Gene therapy,
vaccines and small molecule {*filter*} aimed at restoring p53 activity or
other strategies based on p53 offer the potential of valuable new
tools for cancer treatment.
