  • Since breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the world or in Taiwan, the development of new drugs or new treatments strategy for breast cancer is warranted. Aimed to be a platform for Breast Cancer clinical trials in Taiwan, Taiwan Breast Cancer Consortium (TBCC), is formed.
  • The consortium has been proven to prompt collaboration with international pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies as well as institutions in oncology clinical trials for breast cancer.
  • We are also actively assisting Taiwan researchers to design investigators-initiated clinical trials, in line with international standards, and hope to let consortium become an excellent clinical trial alliance in Asia.

Assistance to Domestic Pharmaceutical Companies

Conducting Phase III clinical trial for domestic EirGenix and OBI Pharma to assist with new drug approval; for Amwise Diagnostics on clinical validation of a breast cancer gene-expression profiling assay. (NCT03562637)

 

Assistance of principle investigators-initiated clinical trials

We are convinced that the success of TBCC will bring impact to promoting Taiwan’s international status in the field of breast cancer clinical trial.
