PRECISION-PDX

Advancing personalised cancer treatment for patients with brain tumours. Help change the future of Brain Cancer treatment!

What are the Objectives of the study?

We are collecting tumours of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord tumours) to establish a national biobank in Luxembourg. Patient-donated tumour tissue is crucial for research as it allows us to identify novel biomarkers and develop innovative and personalised treatment strategies for patients. We also use them to create patient-derived preclinical models, which are used to accelerate drug development.

Who can Participate?

  • All patients suffering from nervous system tumours and scheduled for surgery or biopsy at CHL
  • The Study is accepted by the Comité National d’Ethique de la Recherche  in Luxembourg (CNER, PRECISION PDX Protocol, REC-LRNO-20110708)

Please note that this research study will not directly affect the treatment established by your doctor, but it will help improve future treatment options.

Each and every contribution is invaluable.
Thank you for your participation!

How the study will be conducted

I’m interested! What should I do next?
