Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer among women, impacting 2.1 million women each year (WHO)
The number one factor that increases the risk of breast cancer is the history of having the disease personally or in the family. Other factors might include poor ecological conditions, exposure to radiation and obesity. The risk of having the disease also increases with age. Early diagnosis is crucial to improving treatment outcomes. Mammography and Clinical Breast Exam (CBE) are the two most popular methods used for screening of breast cancer.
Oncology is one of the main therapeutic areas we focus on at GCT, having performed numerous studies in Breast Cancer over the past few years.

There are three major types of blood cancer: leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma.
Blood cancer is rare and hard to diagnose. This is why many patients are left untreated during early stages of the disease. Symptoms may include: chest pain, fever, frequent infections and overall weakness.
Yearly, about 1 000 000 people worldwide are diagnosed with blood cancer.
Global Clinical Trials has successfully conducted several Phase II and Phase III studies in Lymphoma, and is familiar with the challenges blood cancer poses. We would like to use this opportunity to spread awareness about this group of diseases, and we hope that the diagnosis and treatments methods become more effective and precise very soon.
