A New Piece in the Prostate Cancer Puzzle

In a promising new development, scientists working tirelessly at the Centre for Cancer Biology (CCB) have identified that high levels of a protein called ‘quaking’ contributes to the poor outlook for prostate cancer tumours that have become resistant to chemotherapy and other treatments.

Cancer killing T cells fighting prostate cancer

Cancer fighting T cells already present in our blood may hold the key to fighting tumours in prostate cancer, replacing the need for invasive surgery.

Research from the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research (BHI), has found that activated T cells delivered to a localised area enhances their cancer killing potential. This is particularly effective when treating the early stages of prostate and breast cancers, which develop in a confined space. Continue reading

Revolutionary Research to Stop the Spread of Prostate Cancer

While there are many treatments available for prostate cancer, once the disease spreads, it becomes more difficult to treat. Professor Greg Goodall and his team at the Centre for Cancer Biology are leading vital research to stop the growth and spread of this devastating disease. They are focused on one crucial molecule which plays an important role in our body – the RNA molecule. Continue reading
