Liveration Kick off
On June 1st the LIVERATION project kicked off. LIVERATION is a comprehensive, practical, and multinational clinical trial spanning seven countries, with the objective of investigating if the enlargement of the ablated margin through radiofrequency can reduce the recurrence of Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastasis (CRLM) and enhance patient longevity. A five year project, it is funded by the European Commission Horizon Europe programme (GA 101104360). The consortium is comprised of 8 partners and 3 affiliated entities from 5 countries that met June 29th at the Biomedical Barcelona Research Park to discuss this ambitious project.
ECRIN is the leader of two work packages dedicated to the preparation of clinical trial (regulatory, legal and ethical documents) and the development of a pragmatic clinical trial to evaluate margin coagulation with radiofrequency devices. ECRIN will coordinate the trial in 7 different countries (France, Greece, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, and Switzerland) working along 8 different academic CTUs/CROs.
