Final Report - EPIDIACAN (Development of sensitive methodologies for exploitation of early epigenetic marker diagnosis in major types of cancer)

Project ID: 241783
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the EPIDIACAN project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). EPIDICIAN sought to develop sensitive and specific methodologies to identify early epigenetic markers for major types of cancer, like prostate and colorectal cancer. It is based on recent findings that selected covalent histone modifications and their modifying enzymes can be early markers of tumourigenesis.

The report starts with an executive summary providing a general overview of the project and goes on explaining its context in further detail and listing its specific objectives. Moreover, it lists the most important achievements and finally, it analyses the contribution of each participant in every work package.
