The number of cancers worldwide is steadily increasing. This is due to both population growth and rising life expectancy, as the likelihood of developing cancer increases with age. An unhealthy lifestyle also influences the incidence of cancer.
Among the most common cancers in men is prostate cancer, closely followed by colon– and lung cancer. By contrast, breast cancer is considered the most common cancer and cause of death in women. In second and third place are colorectal cancer and lung cancer. An increase in number of lung cancers is due to increased smoking.
Due to the general increase in cancers, constant intensive research in the field of diagnostics and treatment options is essential.
We offer diagnostic- and parameter-specific panels, as well as large-volume individual donations with extensive clinical documentation of various matrices (e.g. serum, plasma).
