It is our Vision at 4D Lifetec to establish a test system for Effective Early Cancer Diagnostics and create a door opener to Cancer Prediction

Early Cancer Diagnostics

Early detection of cancer is one of the most important challenges for the health care policies in the coming years. Europe alone demands approximately 200 million single examinations per year of its population as an efficient base for prolongation of life expectancy. Today’s major problem of early diagnostics is that unreliable tumor detection at primary stage leads to unspecific therapy. Therefore healthcare costs are not spent efficiently. The US spent $42.4 billion on cancer drugs in 2014 ($100 billion spent on cancer drugs around the world). 75% of cancer treatment don’t work. Therefore, effective methods for early cancer diagnosis would yield to a longer life and dramatically decrease the future financial burden of health care systems.

The Vision of Cancer Prediction

Furthermore, current diagnostics detecting cancer at a later stage of metastasis restricts all therapeutic activities and clinical data assembling to patients who are already affected by cancer. What if we could predict cancer and see it come before an individual really gets affected. To realize this vision, cost effective, highly precise mass screening of populations over time (Human Biomonitoring) would be key. In combination with continuous cancer related data assembly (Social Datamonitoring) the necessary context for prediction of cancer could be created.
