OncoSim can answer questions for four cancer sites: breast, colorectal, lung and cervical.

OncoSim-Breast

OncoSim-Breast is a mathematical simulation tool for breast cancer, modelling the cancer’s natural history and progression. The model reflects disease progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Breast, users can estimate the economic burden of breast cancer and the impact of interventions on breast cancer-related outcomes. For example, users will be able to:

  • Compare breast cancer screening strategies
  • Vary screening age, intervals and follow-up protocols
  • Assess quality improvement initiatives related to breast cancer screening

OncoSim-Colorectal

OncoSim-Colorectal is a mathematical simulation tool for colorectal cancer, modelling the cancer’s and adenomas’ natural history and progression. The model reflects disease progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Colorectal, users can evaluate the effects of interventions to reduce colorectal cancer’s impact, such as screening programs, quality initiatives and new treatments. For example, users will be able to:

  • Compare and assess the impact of different screening methods (fecal tests, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy)
  • Vary age and screening intervals
  • Assess how screening can vary with family history

OncoSim-Lung

OncoSim-Lung is a mathematical simulation tool for lung cancer. The model reflects lung cancer’s progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Lung, users can estimate the economic burden of lung cancer and the impact of interventions on lung cancer-related outcomes. For example, users will be able to:

  • Assess the impact of smoking cessation programs
  • Evaluate lung cancer screening strategies and new lung cancer treatment options
  • Assess interventions to reduce radon exposure

OncoSim-Cervical

OncoSim-Cervical is a mathematical simulation tool for cervical cancer. The model reflects cervical cancer’s progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Cervical, users can estimate the economic burden of cervical cancer and the impact of interventions on cervical cancer-related outcomes. For examples user will be able to:

  • Evaluate the impact of different cervical cancer screening (e.g. Pap vs HPV testing)
  • Vary age and screening intervals
  • Compare varying HPV vaccination strategies using quadrivalent and the nonavalent vaccine
