Cancer Research UK have published their Annual Review for 2017/18 with a major focus on the Early Detection of Cancer. Pages 30-39 feature the chapter "Detecting and Diagnosing Cancer" which includes an article on Owlstone Medical and the PAN Cancer Trial that the company is running with the CRUK Cambridge Centre Early Detection Programme to detect cancer in breath samples.
The document also includes an interview with Sir Harpal Kumar, who stepped down as Chief Executive after more than 15 years with the charity. In his future vision he comments: “I hope it will include something in the area of early detection. We’re getting towards a breakthrough that’ll allow us to detect cancers at an early stage – including some of the most aggressive, dangerous ones – and that’s going to have a huge impact on survival.”
