The European Organisation for Treatment of Trophoblastic Diseases

The European Organisation for Treatment of Trophoblastic Diseases is dedicated to optimise diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and research in GTD by bringing together knowledge of clinicians and researchers working in the field of GTD in Europe.

Goals:

  • Biannual meeting
  • Facilitating establishment of new GTD centres in countries where these do not exist
  • Working group meeting at biannual ESGO meeting
  • Online tumorboard
  • Online advisory board
  • Online database linked to ISSTD
  • Facilitating pan-European research on GTD

1. To formulate guidelines for the diagnosis of GTD, particularly criteria for the diagnosis of early molar pregnancies by:

  • Providing a work flow for diagnosis of molar pregnancies / GTT indicating where ancillary techniques would be useful
  • Outlining pathological criteria for diagnosis of molar pregnancies with reference to relevant publications
  • Outlining pathological criteria for diagnosis of trophoblastic tumours with reference to relevant publications
  • Outlining each of the recommended ancillary techniques with reference to relevant publications

2. To encourage centralised management by:

  • Ensuring as many pathologists as possible are aware of the EOTTD and recruiting one or more representatives, from each of the different countries / regions in the EOTTD, to the Pathology and Genetics Working Group
  • Providing a list of representatives for the different counties/regions in the EOTTD who might be able to offer advice on difficult cases

3. To facilitate research by:

  • Collaborating on the review of rare and unusual cases
  • Incorporating a research/case review day at the next EOTTD meeting

We invite anyone interested in contributing to the objectives or simply being informed about latest developments to send their name to the EOTTD Membership secretary, secretary@eottd.org, for inclusion on the Pathology and Genetics Working Party email list. Please join us. All ideas are welcomed.
