BCI at the 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting: Results from the PAKT and ABACUS trials

15th June 2018

Professors Peter Schmid and Thomas Powles attended this year’s ASCO Annual Meeting, which took place from 1st-5th June in Chicago. Prof Schmid, presented data from the PAKT trial- a trial investigating the addition of a novel drug called AZD5363 to a standard chemotherapy regimen as a treatment for triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Prof Powles presented results from the ABACUS trial, which is investigating the efficacy and safety of a drug called atezolizumab administered prior to cystectomy in muscle invasive bladder cancer. The ABACUS trial was selected as one of the highlights of this year’s meeting.

Research suggests improved detection rates are needed to maximise cancer prevention

8th June 2018

Current detection strategies are found to have identified only 2.6% of the BRCA gene mutation carriers in the Greater London population, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Medical genetics. The findings of the study, performed by researchers from the BCI’s Centre for Experimental Cancer Medicine, led by Dr Ranjit Manchanda, suggest that enhanced and new approaches are required to maximise the opportunity for breast and ovarian cancer prevention.

Forecasting the evolution of cancer

28th May 2018

New research, published today in Nature Genetics, has developed a computer model that forecasts the changes that occur within tumours as they develop. In the future, it is hoped that such a model may enable the prediction of the trajectory of tumour growth in patients, allowing clinicians to pre-empt disease course and tailor treatment regimens accordingly.

International Clinical Trials Day 2018

21st May 2018

International Clinical Trials Day is celebrated on 20th May each year in recognition of the clinical trials conducted around the world, which ensure that research from the laboratory can be translated into patient benefit. The progress that is continuing to be made in cancer research, resulting in cancer survival rates doubling in the last 40 years, would not be possible without the researchers, clinicians, nurses and, of course, patients that are involved in clinical trials each year.
