Genedata Enables Research to Improve Personalized Treatment of Breast and Ovarian Cancer
Date:3/20/2013

ction tests and over-zealous screening procedures,” noted Professor Dr. Martin Widschwendter, the EpiFemCare project coordinator, from the Department of Women’s Cancer at the University College London“We look forward to collaborating with Genedata and using their epigenetics and oncology expertise to develop innovative blood-based tests with increased sensitivity to ovarian cancers and increased specificity for breast cancers.

Innovative and collaborative, the EpiFemCare project is partially funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP7). In addition to Genedata, project collaborators include: Charles University (Prague, Czech Republic); Ludwig Maximilian University (Munich, Germany); EURAM Ltd (Nottingham, United Kingdom); and GATC Biotech (Konstanz, Germany). EpiFemCare research aims to reduce by 50% the number of women who receive a diagnosis of breast or ovarian cancer when that cancer is already advanced, reduce by 50% the number of women who receive unnecessary long-term chemotherapy, and reduce the number of women dying from these female cancers by 20%.

“The EpiFemCare project is tackling the next frontier in the fight against breast and ovarian cancers -- to facilitate early detection of disease and better prediction of therapeutic outcomes -- and we are eager to contribute our epigenetics know-how to EpiFemCare’s success,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “We hope our experience and expertise in the management and analysis of complex datasets in the context of epigenetics and oncology research will help improve methods for screening, diagnosing and personalizing treatment of breast and ovarian cancers.”
