Dr Giovanni Palladini - Director, Amyloidosis Research and Treatment Center, Pavia, Italy

Dr Palladini talks to ecancertv at ICMM 2016 about screening for amyloidosis, to prevent people being mistakenly treated for cancer.

Because amyloidosis is rare, he says, it can be overlooked as a possibility and people can undergo futile chemotherapy.
