Manchester Breast Centre researchers have found a new way to drain cancer’s ‘fuel tank’ and have explored what allows a non-invasive form of breast cancer to resist treatment and come back.

Our scientists at the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute have identified more than 400 ‘blind spots’ in DNA that could conceal mistakes which might play a vital role in cancer development.

Further laboratory studies into a new anti-cancer drug have shown that its effectiveness is improved by combining it with radiotherapy. The research findings from the Manchester Pharmacy School suggest a new approach that could be used in patients.
