An update of the program has been released. Please find more information at: Prevention of Breast Cancers
Israeli-French breast cancer update Prevention, Detection and treatment
A multidisciplinary approach
King David hotel Jerusalem
From Wednesday 30th April to Friday 2nd May 2014.
Program on request: please contact – Sabine.firstname.lastname@example.org
On November 21 and 22, 2014 a selection of the most productive international research groups will present their latest data on “prevention of breast cancers”. Indeed, we no longer can speak about breast cancer as a single disease but must recognise the many faces and biomolecular forms of breast cancer. Attention goes to the role of nutrition, practical chemoprevention, molecular differences, novel detection methods as well as vaccination to prevent the disease in the earliest stages. This milestone meeting will take place in the vibrant city of Genk/Hasselt, in the most eastern part of Belgium and a couple of miles from Maastricht.

A warm welcome to the website of ECP where all information can be found related to the organization, who we are, what we do and how you can participate in the fight against cancer through prevention.
Building a strong team fighting against cancer!
Within the European Community cancer causes more than 700,000 deaths per annum and a good proportion of these should be preventable. It has been estimated that 30 to 40 % of human cancers are caused by lifestyle and dietary factors. This number could be reduced by appropriate changes in lifestyle and diet. The early detection of cancer at various sites in the body has also been proved to save many lives. Not only does Europe offer a wide range in incidence of all of the most common cancers, but it also has a similarly wide range in dietary patterns, environmental exposures and social behavior. Europe offers an ideal ‘laboratory’ within which to test or to formulate hypotheses on the causation of human cancers.
Recent progresses in molecular biology together with the results of many epidemiological studies have greatly extended our research tools by identifying intermediate markers for cancer risk. These markers can identify individuals at increased risk for cancer and allow monitoring of preventive interventions or strategies. As more and more intermediate markers become available and new diagnostic tools emerge, primary prevention becomes a reality, with lots of power in the fight against cancer. Due to the availability of these new tools to the medical community and the growing body of preventive strategies, a shift from medical curative and palliative medicine into prevention has been noted. ECP, as a scientific organization with a worldwide network of co-workers and over 20 years experience, is ideally positioned to guide and support this process and ensure a solid transition from treatment to prevention in the most efficient fight against the disease. Various working groups conduct scientific research in the area of cancer prevention. For more information, please consult one of the ECP headquarters.
This website is constructed with the help of many researchers and members of ECP to guide you in the field of cancer prevention, who we are, what we do, and how you can join us for an important mission.
on behalf of ECP, Jaak Ph. Janssens ~ President
