European researchers unite to fight cancer
Stockholm's Karolinska Institute and 27 other European medical research universities and institutions are joining forces to provide benefits to cancer patients more quickly and effectively.
Swedish doctors maintain that European institutions are too small to be effective on their own and can not afford the necessary expensive equipment and specialization.
They add that although progress is being made in the battle against cancer, the problems are growing even faster as the population in Europe becomes older and cancer more frequent.
Cancer is considered the number one killer in the West.
