Protein that stimulates the immune system to attack PCa cells

Posted 19 Dec 2018 at 09:48

The Radio 4 appeal on Sunday was by Stephen Fry who as we know has recently had surgery for Prostate Cancer.  He was appealing for another charity named below.  I don't know much about this but wonder if anyone else has heard of this charity and the work they're doing.  Does PCUK allow appeals from other charities, we'll soon find out.

The text says:

'We believe in a better future for men with prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer Research Centre (PCRC) is the only UK charity solely dedicated to developing treatments for men with life-threatening prostate cancer.

Christine Galustian, one of the charity’s lead scientists, has identified a way to use a protein that stimulates the immune system to attack prostate cancer cells, leaving normal cells alive. Christine and her team have successfully reduced tumour growth by 60% in the lab and all money sent to this appeal will enable her work to be tested in men next year.'
