Promising Research to Stop the Spread of Prostate Cancer

By hosting a dinner with your friends, you’re helping to save lives from prostate cancer.

Leading this research are experts Dr Phillip Gregory and Professor Greg Goodall from the Centre for Cancer Biology who are committed and passionate about finding a cure for this terrible disease.

Dr Gregory and Prof Goodall recently identified a protein that is likely to control whether prostate cancer becomes more aggressive and spreads to other areas of the body.

“We discovered this protein could drive prostate cancer cells to become more aggressive and there was an indication that this could be linked with prostate cancer that spreads through the body,” Dr Gregory explained.

This key finding could lead to developing treatments to stop not just the spread of prostate cancer, but also other common cancers like breast and colon cancer.

“The reality is most people don’t die from cancer, they die from the spread of cancer,” Dr Gregory said.

“What we hope is that this protein will give clinicians a better indication of whether a patient’s prostate cancer is likely to become aggressive and spread. This protein could be crucial in helping clinicians to determine the best treatment avenue for patients.”

By hosting a Longest Table this year you are helping researchers like Dr Gregory and Prof Goodall continue making treatment advancements in prostate cancer and save the lives of the men you love.
