Before the dinner, doctors Chiara Raggi and Elisa Giommoni, of the Careggi Hospital in Florence, briefly introduced research on this rare but not too much tumor - about 5 thousand people a year contract it in Italy - and on the methods of surgery. and clinical that today offer themselves. The President of the Association said how the funds are used, of which 95% are turned over at the end of the year to the GICO - Italian Research Group on Cholangiocarcinoma.
