Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, CES 2017 will run January 5-8, in Las Vegas, NV.

“The world truly comes to CES,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “In some way, shape or form, every major technology company on the planet participates in our show. Global leaders from companies large and small, government, media and more convene at CES to share or experience the latest products and services, meet their next business partner, make deals and/or simply learn about the next wave of tech that is transforming our world for the better.”

Many international attendees travel to CES as part of the International Buyer Program (IBP)-led delegations. CES is a participant in the IBP, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration. CES 2017 is expecting more than 100 Official CES Delegations from around the globe.

Reinforcing its global reach, CES 2017 has several areas designed specifically to highlight the international aspects of the show. The Global Technology Marketplace will be home to the nearly 900 international exhibitors at CES 2017.

“We look forward to participating in CES 2017,” said Art Stavenka, founder and director, Kino-mo, based in London, UK. “We’ve been looking for the best way to launch our new technology that allows images to appear floating in the air – the new holograms for mass market – and expose it to the media. CES provides us a perfect platform for the launch of such a product to the many industry stakeholders we meet there every year.”

“We launched HEASE Robotics because we believe that robotics will change our lives,” said Jade Le Maître, CTO and CO-founder of Lyon, France-based HEASE Robotics. “We built a robot that is fun, simple, and interactive by design. We are looking forward to meeting potential customers and gathering feedback at CES. It’s incredible how startups gain visibility when exhibiting at Eureka Park.”

Pierre Fabre & Array BioPharma Announce a 62% Observed OS at One Year from the Phase 3 BEACON CRC Safety Lead-In of the Combination of Encorafenib, Binimetinib and Cetuximab in BRAF-Mutant CRC at the ESMO GI Congress23.6.2018 11:00Pressemelding

Not intended for UK- and US-based media Pierre Fabre and its partner Array BioPharma Inc. today announced updated safety and efficacy results, including OS, from the safety lead-in of the Phase 3 BEACON CRC trial evaluating the triplet combination of encorafenib, a BRAF inhibitor, binimetinib, a MEK inhibitor and cetuximab, an anti-EGFR antibody, in patients with BRAF V600E -mutant metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). The results showed that, at the time of analysis, the OS data were fully mature through 12.6 months and that the median OS had not yet been reached. The one-year overall survival rate for this cohort was 62%. These data were presented in an oral presentation on Saturday, June 23, at the ESMO 20th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer in Barcelona, Spain. The median progression-free survival (mPFS) for patients treated with the triplet was 8 months [95% CI 5.6-9.3] and is similar between patients receiving one prior line of therapy and patients receiving two prior lines

Compelling Data for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Presented at ESMO’s World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer by Servier and Taiho23.6.2018 08:10Pressemelding

Servier and Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. today announced that the TASCO-1 trial demonstrated promising results for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in combination with bevacizumab in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who are not suitable for intensive treatment, with a median progression-free survival (PFS) of 9.2 months (ranging from 7.6 to 11.5 months). A second non-comparative arm in the trial, evaluated the outcome of patients treated with the current standard of care of capecitabine in combination with bevacizumab. The median PFS of this arm was 7.8 months (ranging from 5.5 to 10.1 months). “Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. While there has been some progress in treatment, there are still few options for patients with metastatic disease who are not suitable for intensive treatment,” said Professor Eric Van Cutsem, Head of Digestive Oncology at the University of Leuven, Belgium. “These compelling results suggest
