Germany debates breast cancer screening programme:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A forum established to co-ordinate a European programme to fight breast cancer last week concentrated on how a screening programme could speedily be introduced to Germany. By the end of 2003, experts hope to have introduced across the country a quality-assured screening programme based on European guidelines. Results from a number of German projects, started six months ago, were presented at the forum. Dr Margrit Reichel, who ran one of the projects in Wiesbaden, said that some 3,400 women had taken part, roughly half of those who had been invited. "The women screened were between the ages of 50-69," she told Clinica. 50 breast cancers have so far been detected, she said, a higher number than expected. This had made the projects a genuine success.
