Year on year Prevent Breast Cancer is investing in new and ongoing research projects that bring us one step closer to a breast cancer free future for all.
Research projects are essential. By looking more closely at the various factors, we can learn more about who has an increased risk (PREDICTION) and provide at-risk individuals with the information and support they need to prevent developing this disease (PREVENTION).
Here are the current projects we are funding/part-funding:
- Lobular Breast Cancer Gene – is there a gene that contributes to developing lobular breast cancer?
- SNPs Study – investigates how breast density might increase an individual’s risk of developing breast cancer
- Molecular Basis of Breast Density – why do some women have dense breasts and how is connected with breast cancer?
- PROCAS 2 – Can risk prediction work in a clinical setting?
- FHTomo – The project aims to identify breast cancer in high risk women aged 40-49 at as early a stage as possible to ensure they receive an effective and tailored cancer treatment plan
- Anti-Prolactin for Prevention – There is an urgent need for effective, well-tolerated and safe breast cancer preventative drugs
- DCIS and Clotting – Looking at how anti-coagulants could stop the spread of early cancer.
- Intermittent Diet Studies – The 2-Day Diet has been a global success and research has shown it can dramatically reduce one’s risk of developing breast cancer
- PROCAS Lifestyle – Assessing if we can introduce lifestyle changes for women at high risk of developing breast cancer through an online and telephone support system
- BRRIDE 2 – How does The 2-Day Diet affect body composition and reduce breast cancer risk.
- BRRIDE 3 – Which women respond best to the 2-day diet and how can we identify them?
