Pro-Cancer-Research Fund PCRF is raising money for Pro Cancer Research Fund
Event dates: 1st January 2008 – 31st December 2018
PCRF is a registered charity and support group for pioneering research into early diagnosis and treatment of cancer by Professor Mustafa Djamgoz and his team at Imperial College , London.
This premier academic institution is currently ranked fifth in the world for bio-medicine.
The charity was set up in 2002 following a Sunday Times article about Professor Djamgoz?s breakthrough research in the treatment of brain cells. He found a way to differentiate between cancerous cells which will spread and cancerous cells which do not.
He believes this discovery will assist in the earlier diagnosis of cancer and his ?neuro-science solutions to cancer? might eliminate today?s use of chemotherapy. The drawbacks of ?chemo? are that it has many unpleasant side effects and attacks both cancerous and non-cancerous cells.
At present the team?s work is focused on prostate and breast cancer, but they are confident their new techniques can benefit all sufferers from the disease.
Results so far are described as ?highly promising? and in some cases tumours have been reduced by up to fifty per cent. Money is now needed to fund further research before Professor Djamgoz and his team can embark on clinical trials.
Aside from this work, PCRF is also helping to fund a London drop-in centre for cancer sufferers and their relatives.
The Amber Care Centre opened in November, 2005 and has already treated many patients.
