  EU-funded researchers tackle cervical cancer

Photo of article Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer worldwide; each year some 60 000 women in Europe alone are diagnosed with the disease, and around half of these cases will prove fatal. Nipping the problem in the bud is made difficult when the disease is not detected and treated early enough. Supported by the EU with EUR 2.63 million in funding, the ASSIST ('Association studies assisted by inference and semantic technologies') project aimed to fix this problem by creating technological links between medical centres specialising in cervical cancer diagnosis and treatment, as well as fuelling data exchange and building a larger data repository.
