The WIN Consortium (Worldwide Innovative Networking in personalized cancer medicine), has launched WINTHER, an original academic and international clinical trial.

This is the first clinical trial offering a choice of therapy guided by the biology to the majority of patients included in the study.

From a double biopsy of the tumour (or metastasis) and normal tissue of each patient, a complete biological analysis will be carried out (DNA, RNA and microRNA) with the most advanced technologies . The therapeutic decision will be discussed based on an estimated drug efficacy scoring bioinformatics tool based on these investigations.

The European Community, under the EU FP7  program, has declared WINTHER eligible for a grant, which is currently under negotiation.

This recognition by an independent European jury is a guarantee of the value of the scientific concept and methodology of the project. The aim of this study is to propose a personalized treatment to the vast majority of patients. This strategy represents a breakthrough compared to current oncology practice, which at best offers a personalized biology-guided therapy to 30 % of patients involved in clinical trials.
