Cancer researchers in Nottingham on cusp of developing life-saving treatment

The John van Geest Cancer Research Centre is on the cusp of bringing evidence together from a two-and-a-half year project into prostate cancer stem cells. The team, based at Nottingham Trent University’s campus in Clifton said it is trying to identify the protein bio-markers exclusively identified in cancer stem cells. The discovery could lead to a treatment for cancer patients who have undergone successful radiotherapy or chemotherapy then later relapsed.
