International Tumor Budding Consensus Conference

The TNM Classification system is considered the gold standard to stratify colorectal cancer patients into prognostic subgroups. Nonetheless, there is a major and increasing need for additional prognostic biomarkers to improve the pre and postoperative management of colorectal cancer patients.
Recently, «tumor budding» has emerged as a novel and promising prognostic biomarker in colorectal cancer. Tumor budsare single tumor cells or small tumor cellclusters that have detached themselves from the tumor and can be found at the invasive front of colorectal cancer. Their quantification on histological slides is an important tool in pathology.
Although several independent studies have demonstrated the prognostic power of tumor budding, the lack of an internationally standardized scoring system is a major obstacle in incorporating tumor budding into routine diagnostics.
For these reasons, the widespread integration of tumor budding into pathology reports and patient management has become our mission. Such a goal can only be achieved by the organization of an INTERNATIONAL TUMOR BUDDINGCONSENSUS CONFERENCE
