Known as the most important pathology congress of Turkey, the 27th National Pathology Congress took place in Antalya between 15 and 18 November 2017 with the participation of the leading pathologists worldwide. Eastern Mediterranean University was represented at the said event by Assist. Prof. Dr. M. Hasan Toper.
The congress hosted presentations on the findings of recent research on the genetic qualities of various types of cancers. It was stated that positive changes are taking place in the treatment of lung, breast and colon cancers , thanks to the new medicine targeting genetic mutations in the said cancer types.
EMU Dr. Fazıl Küçük Medicine Faculty academic staff member Assist. Prof. Dr. M. Hasan Toper delivered a presentation titled “Specification of Double Expressor Group and Its Prognostic Significance in Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma Cases” and poster presentations titled “A Few Atypical Cells that may be Missed in Liver Needle Biopsy: Diagnosis?” and “Suspicious Infiltration around the Lymph Node in Lung Adenocarcinoma Cases: Could it be Malignant Mesothelioma?’
Assist. Prof. Dr. Toper carried out research on ‘Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma Cases” in adults and tried to define genetic mutations preventing the patients from responding to the treatment positively. The newly defined sub-group lymphoma defined in Assist. Prof. Dr. Toper’s research findings will contribute to the treatment planning of the said cancer type. It is hoped that in the light of research findings of Assist. Prof. Dr. M. Hasan Toper, new treatment options for cancer will be introduced.
