About us

We are an international group of researchers and physicians working on the organs pleura and peritoneum in health and disease. The clinical demand for knowledge and improved management of patients with peritoneal diseases, in particular cancer, has never been greater. However, results from recent randomized studies have shown that therapy-focused research based on the trial and error principle carries a high risk of failure. We need to apply evidence and rigor to the treatment of these patients.

We created ISSPP to address this challenge.
