Additional funding for UK prostate cancer research:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK government has injected an extra £1 million ($1.6 million) in funding for research into diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. An expert review group, co-ordinated by the Medical Research Council, has also been set up to identify the key areas of prostate cancer research. However, Jonathan Waxman, chairman of the UK Prostate Cancer Charity, said "much more funding will be required" in order to tackle the disease. Over 10,000 men die from the disease in the UK each year and 20,000 new cases are diagnosed annually. The rates of incidence are expected to increase by almost 50% by 2021.
