The Connective Tissue Oncology Society (CTOS) held its 2018 Annual Conference in Rome between the 14-17 November. Jane Gutkovich represented the USA , and the event being in Europe was also a golden opportunity for Hugh Leonard, EHERCC Chair of Trustees from London, to also attend. The EHE group also held an advisory group meeting at the conference that was attended by representatives of the American, European and Australian EHE research and oncology communities. “We had an excellent meeting with advisors and doctors who are helping with the fight against EHE. Time was inevitably tight but they were all very engaged, and enthusiastic, with lots of good comments and animated discussions” commented Hugh Leonard.
