Pooling of European data to hamonise transnational research in breast cancer

Objective

The proposal is to obtain a large Data Set of Breast cancers, from Breast Units representative of the presentation of the disease in Europe. No such large tunmour set, with carefully compiled and checked long-term clinical follow-up and with standardised histological and other measurements of tumour factors, exists in Europe. The Data Set will provide a critical mass, invaluable in translational research for relating tumour factors to clinical outcomes. The Consortium for the project provides a European Network of Excellence in Breast Cancer. At the conclusion of the project this will be expanded by other Units. In turn this will provide a huge Data Set with associated Quality Assurance of the data.
