For those who are following these more basic considerations, it is not surprising that the US Prevention Services Task Force (USPSTF) revised their recommendations (regular breast cancer screening only at the age of 50, screening only every other year, neither encouraging nor teaching breast selfexamination and no mammography beyond 75). The new findings and the recommendations of a task force should be sufficient to trigger a discussion, which is directly related to the effectiveness and efficiency of today’s medicine.

3 Biomarkers for Early Detection and as Surrogate Endpoints in Cancer Prevention Trials: Issues and Opportunities Early Detection Research Network (EDRN). In 2000, the National Cancer Institute (NCI)’s Division of Cancer Prevention established the EDRN to take a systematic approach to the development of cancer-screening biomarkers. The need for a systematic approach was ­considered especially pressing given the surge of data available with the growing use of ­gene-expression microarrays, proteomics, and other large-scale molecular techniques.
