Welcome to The PLATON Network

Dear Investigators,

Prof. A. Vogel

Prof. S.-E. Al-Batran

welcome to the website of the PLATON network.

PLATON intends to improve the individualized, targeted therapy for patients in different cancer entities by bringing together molecular profiles, clinical data, and study data.

As a key feature, PLATON provides participating physicians with the opportunity to conduct Next Generation Sequencing for their patients and enter the molecular profiles, the key clinical data and the available trials into a specialized data base.

One other key feature of PLATON is an interactive, internet-based platform, in which participating physicians exchange these information to increase the likelihood of treating the patients with an individualized therapy.

In addition, PLATON investigates the predictive and prognostic impact of the detected molecular alterations. In a pilot phase, 200 patients will be enrolled.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in the PLATON network.

Sincerely yours,

Prof. A. Vogel and Prof. S.-E. Al-Batran
