The ethics committee of Hospital de San Chinarro (Madrid) has approved the implementation of the clinical study “Development of biomarkers and mathematical models based on medical images for prognosis and prediction in brain metastasis“ (METMATH). In the framework of this project, the participating units of the hospital will be providing data and participating in the scientific discussions of this interdisciplinary research project. 

 

With this addition the hospitals participating in the project are Instituto Valenciano de Oncología, Hospital Regional Universitario de Málaga, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Hospital Regional Universitario de Salamanca.

This will allow the obtention of a larger ammount of longitudinal imaging data from brain metastasis patients and design mathematical algorithms allowing to better personalize therapies for this common problem in cancer patients.
