We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
In an extensive review of scientific literature, around 120,000 peer-reviewed publications were retrieved and screened for innovative and promising advanced non-animal models of breast cancer.
From this, a total of 935 papers describing relevant non-animal models for breast cancer were identified - according to a set of inclusion/exclusion criteria - and analysed.
A detailed description of all these 935 non-animal models for breast cancer research as well as information on their applications and biological relevance has been gathered in a unique knowledge collection.
It is easily downloadable as a spreadsheet file from the EURL ECVAM collection in the JRC Data Catalogue.
This knowledge base is complemented with a Technical Report that provides an in-depth analysis of the models identified and of the review methodology used.
An executive summary is also available for non-technical readers interested in how they can benefit from this study.
