Patients & Public & Health Professionals 

The IBCSG pioneers research in combined hormonal therapy and chemotherapy, timing and duration of adjuvant therapies and quality of life of breast cancer patients. The latest generation of trials in the adjuvant setting addresses tailored treatment for subgroups of patients, as we also expand our research into neoadjuvant treatment and chemotherapy for advanced disease. In addition to clinical trials, we conduct extensive programs in translational research, database studies, quality of life and statistical methodology. IBCSG strives to conduct clinical trials at the highest level of knowledge in breast cancer medicine, trial methodology, data handling, and ethical conduct.

In 2014 we are managing 4 open trials, having coordinated 38 closed trials (now in follow-up) since 1977. The IBCSG clinical database on closed trials is very detailed and facilitates subgroup analyses or analyses pooling data from several trials to evaluate specific hypotheses. More than 38,000 patients have participated in IBCSG trials as of December 2013.


The next  IBCSG Annual Meeting will take place in Vienna, Austria on March 21st and 22nd, 2015.
