PRIME-ROSE is present at the ESMO 2023 congress

PRIME-ROSE will be presented in the ESMO poster exhibition, 1711P - The DRUP-like clinical trials family: A distributed European trial network for equitable access to precision medicine.

With a successful start for the five-year collaboration among 24 partners across Europe, the PRIME-ROSE network collaboration will introduce its concept towards precision medicine (PCM). The project is coordinated by Professor Kjetil Taskén from Oslo University Hospital and Hans Gelderblom from Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) and will address key scientific and methodological questions to accelerate broad and equitable access to new and effective cancer treatments across Europe.

PRIME-ROSE consists of separate precision cancer medicine DRUP-like trials that will share and aggregate data, thus having a higher impact on patient care by cross-border collaboration. PRIME-ROSE collaborates closely with the EU4Health project PCM4EU, that in particular focuses on precision cancer medicine diagnostics. As the community of the PCM and DRUP-like clinical trials is growing, we are also gathering for a get-together meeting during ESMO to discuss ongoing DRUP-like trials and developments.

Hans Gelderblom from Leiden, The Netherlands, PRIME-ROSE co-coordinator, will be presenting the PRIME-ROSE poster on Sunday 22nd October.  

Hans Gelderblom concludes: “Opening the possibilities for wider collaboration across Europe will serve patients for more equitable access for treatments, but also confirm the science and give wider use of treatments already in the market. Together we have more power for tackling inequalities”.
