Take a look of project's partnership.
EPIGEN test is a ready-to-use tool capable to lead the oncologist to the best Non Smal Cell Lung Cancer treatment, the most common subtype of lung cancer (80% of cases). The standar treatments to combat NSCLC are both chemo- and radiotherapy, but many patients (up to 65%) presents resistance, and currently there is not any tool available for the clinician to predict it. The EPIGEN test will allow the clinician a patient stratification in terms of the patient susceptibility to radio- and chemotherapy, and therefore lead for a personalyzed prescription. The EPIGEN test tecnology is based on the determination of the methylation percentage of the epigenetic biomarker IGFBP-3 in the patient tumor samples. The methylation percentage of IGFBP-3 is determined by using qMS-PCR (quantitative methylation specific polymerase chain) tecnique, a well known and extended biochemistry tecnique. The methylation percentage provided by using the EPIGEN test protocol and reagents in the qMS-PCR tecnique will lead the clinician for the optimal NSCLC treatment, avoiding the possible patient resistance to chemo and radiotharapy, and therefore unnecesary side effects and costly therapies.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "EPIGEN" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
