Improve detection and prevention of gallbladder cancer
Gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) is among the most aggressive cancers. It can only be cured at a very early stage. Unfortunately, GBC does not show signs and symptoms until it is in the advanced phase. Effective prevention and early diagnosis are needed. The EU-funded EULAT Eradicate GBC project will build a European-Latin America GBC biorepository connected to a computing platform that will enable research of the role, influence, and characteristics of a wide range of factors. The goal is to achieve faster detection. Novelty GBC biomarkers will be established. New epidemiological and molecular risks will be identified, leading to more accurate predictions, individualised prevention, and more targeted therapy. Innovative genomic alterations’ data in incidental GBC will enable further clinical trials.
