Long term collections of human tissue or body fluids in biobanks combined with health-related data are important resources for medical research and the development of personal medicine in the future. At present, increasing number of clinical studies published new diagnostic, preventive options or treatment approaches of especially age related diseases such as diabetes, cancer or neurodegeneration. For some years, a rapid improvement in the mutual exchange of data and common quality assurance policies between biobanks can be observed especially in western countries. However, global web-based interfaces suitable to search for disease-related information and biomaterial are not yet in practice partly due to differences in national private policy laws and missing cooperative efforts between health care IT systems. In a new collaborative project between the Technical Hochschule of Brandenburg and the Faculty of Health Sciences, a joint Faculty of the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, the Brandenburg Medical School Theodor Fontane and the University of Potsdam, we try to fill this gap and review the technical and juristic requirements to accesses biomaterial and clinical data of US and European cancer patients ultimately leading to a concept for an international biobank network interface. Our aim is to provide instantly clinical data such as diagnostic and treatment approaches in real time that can be used by physicians and medical scientists from all over the world.
