Some forms of cancer can become resistant to hormone therapy.
Oncolytic Viral Therapy – Dr Guy Simpson
The best strategies for new treatment remain to be defined, but we need to look beyond traditional chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Clinical trials have found that the EN2 biomarker test is twice as effective as the PSA blood test currently used to detect prostate cancer.
The SUN Study – Dr Agnieszka Michael
The SUN study is an example of a successful project delivered with the support of Prostate Project charity.
Targeting the HOX/PBX interaction in tumour cells using a peptide, HXR9
Potential targets for novel therapies include proteins involved in cell growth and signalling within the cell.
