Credit Designation Statement

Physician-scientists and clinical oncologists who review manuscripts submitted to the AACR journals.

The faculty, committee members, and staff who are in position to control the content of this activity are required to disclose to The American Association for Cancer Research and to learners any relevant financial relationship(s) of the individual or spouse/partner that have occurred within the last 12 months with any commercial interest(s) whose products or services are related to the CME content. Financial relationships are defined by remuneration in any amount from the commercial interest(s) in the form of grants; research support; consulting fees; salary; ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options, or ownership interest excluding diversified mutual funds); honoraria or other payments for participation in speakers’ bureaus, advisory boards, or boards of directors; or other financial benefits. The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent CME planners with relevant financial relationships from planning or delivery of content, but rather to provide learners with information that allows them to make their own judgments of whether these financial relationships may have influenced the educational activity with regard to exposition or conclusion.
The AACR has reviewed all disclosures and resolved or managed all identified conflicts of interest, as applicable.
