Together against Metastatic breast cancer

About one in three or four breast cancers will develop metastases, which means that the disease will spread to other organs and parts of the body. This advanced form of the disease, is more difficult to treat and remains incurable.

Like a navigation device tracing the route to be followed, “The BIG metastatic breast cancer GPS” aims to map the path taken by cancer cells by analysing their abnormalities in a wide range of genes and at different time-points during the evolution of the disease.

If we can anticipate the paths taken, we will one day be able to block the progression of cancer cells, to delay the metastatic process and possibly stop it completely. 



This study is expected to reach its initial recruitment goal of 1.000 women and men in the coming months. However, because of the great interest from around the globe in its very rich and unique data, BIG plans to extend the study to recruit an additional 1000 women and men, if enough funding can be secured. More than ever, we need your support.
