Patients with newly diagnosed invasive breast cancer require their axillary lymph node status to be histologically established. 28,786 axillary staging procedures were performed in the UK in 2007. Standard practice is to perform this surgically…

CAM-PLEX

In the absence of resectability, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is almost uniformly lethal; therefore there is a great need to identify novel therapeutic approaches. Only 10-20% of patients present with operable disease and with addition…

CamBMT1

Brain metastases occur in 20% to 40% of all patients with cancer, with an incidence 10 times higher than that of primary malignant brain tumours. Patients with brain metastases are an underserved population. Overall, they have a poor prognosis…

CaNCaP02

In the UK prostate cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death (accounting for 7% of total cancer deaths). Furthermore, in men, it is the 2nd most common cause of cancer death after lung cancer and accounts for 13% of cancer deaths. As…

CaNCaP03

Despite recent advances in CRPC treatment, there remains an unmet medical need to identify those patients with early prostate cancer who are at greatest risk of relapse following treatment with curative intent and to optimize additional therapy.…

CAP001

To date, despite the increasing use of capecitabine in patients with pancreatic cancer, formal pharmacokinetic (PK) studies have not been undertaken in patients who have undergone proximal pancreatico-duodenectomy. Although the use of…

CAP002

This is a clinical trial to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of adjuvant capecitabine in patients who have undergone a total gastrectomy. The study will compare the pharmacokinetic profile of capecitabine administered to patients with gastric…

COMET20d

COVID-19 targets the body's respiratory system, where infections can be found in the nose, throat and lungs. The effect of COVID-19 infection is very variable, where many people might not know that they have been infected and have recovered from…

COUGAR-02

Carcinoma of the Oesophagus and stomach are respectively the 5th and 7th most common causes of death from cancer in the UK, between them accounting for more than 12,500 deaths per annum, more than any other individual cancer site apart from lung…

DIRECT

This study focuses on a form of blood cancer called lymphoma, the most common subtype of which is Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL). DLBCL is curable with chemotherapy in approximately 60% of patients. However, 40% of patients either fail to…

EVIS

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in Western countries. It is a lethal disease that typically presents late, metastasises early and is resistant to conventional treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy.…

GALA-BIDD

Brain tumours (gliomas) are classified as low and high-grade. Correctly distinguishing high-grade glioma (HGG) from low-grade glioma (LGG) during surgery can influence the surgical procedure, enhancing resection and improving survival. The aim of…

HYPAZ

Pazopanib is a new cancer drug that works by limiting the growth of new blood vessels in tumours. Many patients who take pazopanib develop high blood pressure (hypertension). This side effect can make patients have to reduce or stop their cancer…

INTERIM

Melanoma is the most lethal form of skin cancer: over 13,000 patients are diagnosed in the United Kingdom (UK) annually. Although the majority of patients are diagnosed with primary tumours that can be removed by surgery, around 20% will relapse…

LEO

7-20% of gastric or oesophageal adenocarcinomas are known to over-express HER-2. Our data suggests that in vitro molecular over-expression of HER-2 is associated with the ligand independent constitutive phosphorylation of both HER-2 and EGFR…

LUCID

Taking as reference tumour-specific somatic genetic alterations identified within individual cancer biopsies from patients, recent advances in genomic and next generation sequencing technologies now provide the opportunity to investigate whether…

MoNET

Around 60-70% of the breast cancers are oestrogen receptor-positive (ER) and these cancers respond to anti-oestrogen therapy (response rate 30-70%). Post-menopausal women achieve a smaller benefit from chemotherapy as demonstrated by the Early…

Neo-RT

Four in 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer undergo mastectomy with or without breast reconstruction and less than half are satisfied with how they look unclothed. Breast conservation (removing the area with the lump only) can offer less…

NEO-SUN

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is diagnosed in over 6000 patients and accounts for approximately 2% of malignant disease annually in the UK. Many patients initially present with advanced or unresectable disease and furthermore up to 30% of patients…

Neo-tAnGo

The incidence of breast cancer continues to rise in the US and Western Europe and breast cancer remains a major health problem despite considerable improvements in the treatment of the disease both in the adjuvant and in the metastatic setting,…

NET 01

Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are very rare cancers, incidence around 1-2/100,000/year, with characteristically indolent behaviour. The mainstay of treatment is surgical resection. However, many tumours metastasise and cannot be removed, while…

PARTNER

Breast cancer is the most common female cancer worldwide, and the second most common cancer overall, with more than 1,676,000 newly diagnosed in 2012 (25% of female cancer cases and 12% of the total). Although advances in screening, surgical…
