Pan-European Coloproctology Trials Portfolio

ESCP members - partake in a unique opportunity to develop international trials in coloproctology across the whole of Europe!

The Research Committee have been structuring a portfolio of clinical trials that can be made available for international collaboration across Europe. The Trials Portfolio Map is the first step along this road.

This portfolio map is updated regularly with new trials, each being linked to an abstract of the trial and contact details for a protocol. 

The Research Committee would like to thank contributing members and looks forward to developing these and many new studies in the future!
