Periodic Report - EUROTARGET (European collaborative project on targeted therapy in renal cell cancer: Genetic and tumor-related biomarkers for response and toxicity)

Project ID: 259939
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the periodic report of EUROTARGET, funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). EUROTARGET's objective is the targeted therapy in renal cell cancer: genetic and tumour related biomarkers for response and toxicity. The project brings together fifteen partner organisations two companies from eight European countries. The report describes the project context and the main aim to be accomplished, which is to identify markers that predict response and toxicity of the currently used drugs by integration of data generated by multiple high-throughput platforms (high-resolution whole genome SNP arrays on germline DNA, and expression (RNA), epigenetic (DNA) and kinome (proteins) profiling of tumour tissue from non-responding and responding patients.

The summary discusses the work performed do far and the potential impact of the present outcomes.
