Leaders in the field of breast cancer research
Learn about the latest news from the BIG network:
For over 20 years, BIG has been conducting global breast cancer trials and research programmes.
Many are considered to be landmark, introducing particularly innovative designs, contributing to significant breakthroughs, or paving the way towards more personalised treatment of breast cancer.
Academic trials that need your support
Donations greater than or equal to € 40 / year receive a 45% tax reduction. This means your donation of €40 only costs you € 22.
BIG radio tuning
Aims to tailor the use of radiotherapy according to each patient’s risk of breast cancer relapse, ultimately hoping to identify those patients who can safely avoid this treatment. The results of this study could influence how 2 in 5 women with breast cancer are treated in the future.
BIG time for baby
Aims to evaluate whether it is safe for women to interrupt their endocrine therapy to try to conceive after breast cancer. This has been a terrible dilemma to young women wishing to have a child. If treatment is stopped to try to conceive, will it increase the risk of cancer recurrence? This is the kind of question the study intends to address.
Metastatic breast cancer GPS
Aims to improve our understanding of metastatic breast cancer, to identify genetic breakdowns, and to map the routes that cancer cells take to invade other organs. Its first phase recently completed and a second is being launched to focus on specific subtypes of the disease that are particularly aggressive.
Together we are BIG against breast cancer
