Optimising malignant melanoma management in Europe
EUMelaReg collects health information to improve care and treatment for patients with skin cancer
Sustaining and fostering collaboration between academia and industry
for the collection of baseline, treatment and outcome data of representative samples of malignant melanoma patients of major European countries.
Building the largest and quickest melanoma registry in the world
EUMelaReg collects real-world data on melanoma patients throughout Europe and integrates them in a data warehouse.


The consortium has been founded with the scope of assembling real world data on treatment and outcomes of patients with melanoma and, prospectively, other types of advanced skin cancer on a European level.

The major goal is the creation and maintenance of a central registry on melanoma and defined subtypes of non-melanoma skin cancer by:

  • Coordinating the generation of a comprehensive registry of clinical diagnostic, treatment, and outcome data from melanoma cases across different European countries.
  • Ensuring high quality by defining enhanced data set structures and value sets for clinical registration in order to maintain:
    • Comprehensiveness, such that a majority of incident cases can be covered
    • High quality and levels of granularity for clinical data set items
    • Practicability of data capture from routine clinical settings
