Medical research, innovation and development are contributing to the diagnosis of diseases and are constantly generating new treatments and targeted drugs for the treatment of cancer as well. Researchers need samples comprehensively from various groups of patients for research purposes. In the future, it will be possible for biobank samples to be used in many medical research projects.
The submission of samples to the biobank is entirely voluntary and based on consent. Typical biobank samples are the blood and tissue samples collected during treatment. Biobank samples and data are processed in accordance with the data protection provisions for confidential information, maintaining utmost secrecy whilst taking privacy protection into consideration.
By providing a sample to the Biobank, you can support scientific research into your disease now and as time goes on to help develop more effective treatments to promote research and development that will allow you or a loved one to benefit from individually tailored treatments in the future.
