European-Latin American network for early prediction of liver cancers
Tumours of the liver, the bile ducts and the gall bladder are a major cause of mortality globally and are uniquely aggressive in Latin America. Key factors related to the excessive mortality of these tumours are the lack of reliable screening methods and the complexity of diagnosis, which requires advanced imaging technology and difficult-to-access tissue. The EU-funded ESCALON project has assembled a team of specialists from Europe and Latin America consisting of clinicians and basic scientists with expertise in immunology and proteomics. The team aims to identify novel tools that predict the early stages of liver cancer development, which are easily accessible and can dramatically reduce the burden of cancer-related mortality.
