Proposal titleAdvanced surgery PRObes  for the radio-Immuno guided detection of Tumours

AbstractThe early detection of cancer and the optimisation of treatment is the best way to

improve the length and the quality of life of several millions European patients every

year. This project is aimed at developing a set of advanced probes that may greatly

contribute to achieve this result . For example, the treatment of the lung cancer, that is

the first cause of death for tumours in Europe, will benefit an accurate preoperatory study

of the Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) in order to adopt the most suitable therapy.

This allows to perform more specific, sighted, conservative but oncologically radical

interventions. This result can be obtained by applying the "radioimmuno guided surgery",

that consists in a detection of gamma-rays by special probes able to identify several

tumours and their potential nodal metastases. Similarly, the treatment of breast cancer -

another dramatic pathology affecting European women - benefits the detection of the

"sentinel node".
