The German Consortium for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (GC-HBOC) has been founded in 1996 by the German Cancer Aid and has been funded by the German Cancer Aid until recently. GC-HBOC currently comprises 17 university centers providing genetic counseling, histopathological and molecular tissue analysis, genetic testing, and specific structured surveillance programs for early cancer detection at each clinical unit, all based on defined standard operating procedures.
Goal of the Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE) is the investigation of civilization diseases like depression, diabetes, allergies or cardiovascular diseases. For this purpose we collect as much data as possible regarding health and living conditions of the population in Leipzig and provide these data for scientists of the University of Leipzig and other research institutions.
The LIFE-Heart study recruited 7,000 patients with suspected coronary heart disease, manifest heart disease or myocardial infarction. All patients received coronary angiography so that the vascular status in the heart is precisely known. In principle, this examination is not feasible in population-related studies. In addition, the patients were thoroughly examined with regard to the general vascular status and the health of the cardiovascular system. Extensive environmental factors were recorded.
This population-based study examined 10,000 participants randomly selected from the Leipzig population (2011 to 2014). A follow-up is to be carried out from 2017 - 2020. The study mainly included people aged between 40 and 79. All participants underwent a 6-hour study program and people over 60 years of age were invited two more times to in-depth study of cognition and depression and the brain (MRI, EEG). Extensive measurements of genome, metabolome and transcriptome are available. The LIFE-ADULT
During 2003 and 2011 the german cancer aid funded the molecular mechanisms in malignant lymphomas (MMML) project. It is based on strongly interacting networks of reference pathologists, lymphoma scientists, bioinformaticians and clinical trial groups. Within the project about 1000 lymphoma samples and controls were characterized by gene expression and copy number arrays. The datasets were supplemented by extensive histopathological and clinical descriptions of the lymphoma cases. The aim of the
