What is a randomised trial?
 
01:55
To find out more about clinical trials visit http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/trials/ Find out how and why researchers use randomisation to test new treatments. All new treatments need to be tested in clinical trials to find out whether they work , what side effects they have and whether they are as good or better than the standard treatment available. After a long development process researchers use randomise trials to be sure that the results are correct and not biased for any reason.

What are 'checkpoint' immunotherapy drugs?
 
01:50
This video explains the concept of so-called 'checkpoint' immunotherapy drugs (also called checkpoint blockers, or checkpoint inhibitors), which work by allowing a patient's immune system to target their cancer. Find out more about our work on immunotherapy here: http://po.st/sT0XJa and read more detail about how the drugs work, and how they were discovered, on our blog: http://po.st/wkCkoE Our immune cells protect us from harm, patrolling our blood in search of potential problems, and travelling to sites of infection or damage These cells need to spot the difference between health and unhealthy tissues For example, when our cells are infected with virus, they need to be destroyed. Infected cells display different molecules on their surface from healthy cells, indicating they’re damaged. Immune cells can recognise these signs of disease and pass on instructions that tell the infected cell to self-destruct But when it comes to cancer, this situation is a lot more complicated For a tumour to grow it needs to avoid detection. One way tumours can do this is to produce molecules that can trick the immune system One of these is called PD-L1 It interacts with a molecule on the immune cell, telling it to ignore the cancer. But researchers have now developed drugs to interfere with this process, allowing the immune system to attack the cancer And for some cancers, these new immunotherapies look set to change the way the disease is treated.

What is cancer radiotherapy and how does it work?
 
02:31
Radiotherapy plays a crucial part in treating lots of different cancers. And new technology is making it more precise and reducing side effects. It works by firing x-rays or other intense bundles of energy at cancer cells, damaging their DNA. If a cancer cell can't repair its damaged DNA, it dies.

Watch the video to learn what it's like, or read more about it on our website: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/cancer-in-general/tests/flexible-sigmoidoscopy A flexible sigmoidoscopy is a test to look inside your back passage and the lower part of your large bowel. You might have the test to check symptoms, to monitor a condition or as part of the bowel cancer screening programme. A doctor or specialist nurse uses a thin flexible tube called a colonoscope. This has a small light and camera at one end. The doctor or nurse puts the tube into your back passage and gently moves it up into the lower part of your bowel. They can see the pictures of the inside of your bowel on a TV monitor. You usually have this test in the endoscopy unit at the hospital. It may take between 5 to 15 minutes. But you should expect to be in the department for up to 2 hours.

Tracking cancer with a blood test

Blood tests that fish for either tumour DNA or cancer cells in patient blood samples are showing great promise. This type of blood analysis is helping Cancer Research UK scientists and doctors better understand the biology of cancer from its earliest origins to when it spreads around the body. And it has the potential to offer a new way of monitoring how patients respond to treatment, as well as how drug resistant tumours may begin to emerge.

iKnife: the surgical device that sniffs out cancer
 
01:59
Professor Zoltan Takats, from Imperial College London, has invented a surgical device that sniffs out cancer cells. The device, called the iKnife, can analyse the smoke that’s produced when heat cuts tissue, telling scientists the type of tissue that’s being cut. Takats and his team are developing the intelligent knife in the hope of making surgery more precise. He’s also co-leading a Cancer Research UK-supported trial, called the REI-EXCISE trial, that’s aiming to see if the iKnife can be used in breast cancer surgery.

Spotting mouth cancer signs and symptoms early -- Mike's story -- Cancer Research UK

This is a Cancer Research UK video. Learn more about mouth cancer at www.cancerresearchuk.org/cancer-help/type/mouth-cancer/ Video transcript: Mike: My name is Mike Donahue, I live in County Durham. I’m a professional magician and in 2007 I was diagnosed with mouth cancer. I was getting shaved for an event early evening to go out and perform at an event and I noticed a lump on my neck. At first I just thought it was muscle so for a couple of weeks I didn’t do anything and then I thought there’s maybe something not right here. So I went to the GP and as soon as he looked at it he faxed though to hospital just to get it checked in case it was cancer. And he actually mentioned the word cancer. I remember going to a Blackpool magic convention which I used to go to every year wondering whether I would have cancer or not when I came back. And they said yeah you’ve got cancer. So it was shock and devastation. But thanks the skill of the doctors and the brains of the medical world I’m still here. So very lucky but I put it down to going straight away really to get it seen to. The sooner you go to get it checked out the more chance you’ve got of recovering from whatever you have wrong with you so it makes sense to go early. For me, the fact that I went early, that’s why I’m still here and living a full life now. So I’m doing the best I can to be fit and I’m really happier than I’ve ever been in my life. Really happy.

How does cancer start?
 
01:07
Learn about how cancer starts from Cancer Research UK. Cancer starts when a healthy cell becomes damaged, and begins to multiply out of control. Find out more by watching the video, or reading about how cancer starts on our website: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/what-is-cancer/how-cancer-starts Learn about how cancer starts when a cell's DNA is copied but there is a mistake. The cell checks whether everything is okay with the DNA. Is it damaged? Has it been copied correctly? Usually a cell with damaged DNA will die. But sometimes the cell ignores this warning and continues. The cell gets ready to divide. It builds a scaffold, called the spindle, which attaches to the DNA. The cell checks again whether everything is okay. Is the DNA attached properly? Here you can see part of the DNA is attached to the wrong spindle. Usually a cell with a faulty spindle will die. But sometimes the cell ignores the warning and divides anyway. The cell splits, but each new cell doesn't have the right number of chromosomes. So some cells don't have the correct number of genes and others have extra copies. These faulty cells no longer have the correct instructions, so they start to multiply out of control.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Prostate Cancer?
 
02:34
Find out the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer from Cancer Research UK. Learn how prostate cancer is diagnosed and the tests needed to find out. http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/prostate-cancer/symptoms In the video, Dr. Vincent Gnanapragasm from Cambridge University talks us through prostate cancer symptoms, signs and types: "As the most common cancer in men understanding Prostate Cancer is vital. So I’ve come to Cambridge University hospital to speak with Dr. Vincent Gnanapragasam to find out how they go about diagnosing this common cancer. Well Vincent, Prostate Cancer is notoriously difficult to diagnose isn’t it. Indeed, in fact Prostate Cancer most often has no symptoms. A man might go to his GP because he has notice a change in his urinary symptoms, getting up at night maybe or having difficulty passing water. And most often that’s due to a normal enlargement of the prostate as he gets older. In fact prostate cancer doesn’t cause any symptoms unless it is very advanced. In which case it might mimic some of those symptoms of an obstructed or large prostate. But if there are any concerns the first step is to go and see your GP who can then investigate further. What would your GP do? - Take a history - Do a physical examination - PSA blood test So what would your GP do? Most often they’ll take a history from you, do an examination of the prostate and do a PSA blood test. What is a PSA test? So PSA stand for Prostate Specific Antigene. It’s produced by the prostate gland and it’s a marker for the presence of Prostate Cancer. However it can also be raised by other conditions so it’s not a very specific marker but it’s the first test that we can do to see whether we should proceed to further investigations. What is a PSA test? A blood test that measures the amount of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. So what happens if you get sent to the hospital for an examination? The specialist will see you, again take a history and an examination and then most often what they will do is arrange a prostate biopsy. Increasingly they might recommend a scan to be done first, an MRI scan and then discuss with you what the best way to do a biopsy is. What is a Biopsy? The removal of a small sample of tissue for examination to determine the presence or extent of a disease. And if it is cancer tell us what happens then, tell us about some of the tests. Well, a discussion then starts. The first step is to make sure we know exactly what kind of Cancer it is and that might involve other types of scans, for example a CT scan or a bone scan. The kind of Cancer is determined by the size of it or the stage of a cancer. And once the specialist puts all that information together with what the biopsy has shown then they start to discuss with you what the treatments are."

Finding immune cells that can tackle evolving cancers
 
01:41
Cancer Research UK scientists may have found the tools necessary to give immunotherapy the precision guidance that patients so desperately need. Read more about this research on our Science blog: http://po.st/YbfekN More than 150 years ago Charles Darwin first drew evolution like a tree, predicting that different species branch off from their ancestors. And we now know that as a tumour grows, it evolves too, leading to some parts being different from others. This makes it difficult for our immune system to tackle. Because, even though the body’s immune cells recognise there’s a problem and try to hold the cancer at bay, the tumour’s growing complexity can overwhelm them. But it’s become clear that even complex regions of tumours bear hallmarks of their origins, shown here in yellow. And Cancer Research UK scientists have now discovered rare immune cells inside tumours, that can recognise these early, shared features. If these can be isolated, and artificially multiplied in the lab, they could form a fearsome cancer-fighting force, with the potential to target every cancer cell in the body. And combining them with drugs that harness the immune system could lead to a new generation of personalised cancer treatments. So our scientists now plan to study these cells further in the lab. If their promise holds true, it could prove a revolutionary new way to treat – or even cure – cancer.

Bowel Cancer Symptoms - Clive's Story - Cancer Research UK
 
02:00
For more information on the symptoms of Bowel, Colon, Rectal or any other Cancer visit: http://cruk.org/spotcancerearly Clive tells us how he went to his doctor when he first had symptoms of bowel cancer. Learn about possible symptoms of bowel cancer and why it is important to see your doctor as soon as you have symptoms. I'm Clive Barlow I'm from Lythm in saint annes, I'm a retired HR manager. I was diagnosed in 2003 with bowel cancer. For some reason I happened to notice blood in my stool one day when I went to the toilet. I kept that to myself but then it continued and it had gone on for a couple more weeks then I did spoke to my wife and through the conversations it's one of those things I guess men are a bit like that in terms of 'oh it'll go away, it'll sort itself out' but with a bit of persistence and nagging she said I think you'd better go and get it checked out. At that time you don't want to think that it's Cancer because that happens to everybody else and not yourself. When you have that conversation and the consultant tells you that caught it in the early stages and it hasn't spread anywhere else on reflection you have to look back and say that that discussion that happened with my wife really saved my life. Certainly going through the experience I've gone through, I can highly recommend to go and see the doctor. The early diagnosis of my cancer has led me on to have another wonderful 9 years and hopefully more years to come in the future. If you notice any of these symptoms and they last longer than 4 to 6 weeks, tell your doctor: - Bleeding from the bottom without any obvious reason or blood in your poo. - A persistent change in bowel habit to looser or more frequent bowel motions. - Tummy pain, especially if severe. - A lump in your tummy.
