Improvement of European translational cancer research: Collaboration between comprehensive cancer centers
2008 (English)In: Tumori (Milano), ISSN 0300-8916, Vol. 94, no 2, 143-146 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Even though the increasing incidence of cancer is mainly a consequence of a population with a longer life span, part of this augmentation is related to the increasing prevalence of patients living with a chronic cancer disease. To fight the problem, improved preventive strategies are mandatory in combination with an innovative health care provision that is driven by research. To overcome the weakness of translational research the OECI is proposing a practical approach as part of a strategy foreseen by the EUROCAN+PLUS feasibility study, which was launched by the EC in order to identify mechanisms for the coordination of cancer research in Europe.
