Sadly, most of us have been touched by cancer in some way.
That’s why the dedicated researchers and clinicians at Epworth are working tirelessly to find better and more effective treatments for cancer.
Recognised as one of Australia’s leading centres of excellence in cancer treatment, Epworth is working with some of Australia’s best scientists to develop and test innovative new treatments for cancer with ground-breaking results.
Please support research into life-saving treatments for patients with cancer at Epworth.
As part of its commitment to providing the best possible care to our cancer patients Epworth has established several centres of excellence to stay at the forefront of clinical research so we can deliver world-class care.
The EJ Whitten Centre for Prostate Cancer focuses on improving and extending the lives of men with prostate cancer through the use of world-first clinical trials.
At the Epworth Centre for Immunotherapies and Snowdome Laboratories we lead ground-breaking research to change the face of blood cancer treatment forever.
And the Jreissati Pancreatic Centre at Epworth aims to improve outcomes for patients with pancreatic cancer which is currently the third leading cause of cancer deaths in Australia.
Clinical trials into new and revolutionary treatments are an important part of Epworth’s research focus and commitment to providing the best possible care to patients.
One of the exciting new treatments underway is an aerosol chemotherapy cancer treatment called Pressurised Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy.
The benefit of this treatment is it produces fewer side effects such as hair loss, vomiting and nausea for the patient. It may also slow the growth of the tumour and extend the life of someone with cancer.
This revolutionary treatment administers cancer fighting drugs directly to the tumour site using an aerosol spray instead of an injection into the bloodstream.
Finding better treatments and ultimately a cure for various cancers is vital, and by becoming an Epworth donor you are joining the fight to find new treatments and perhaps discover a cure.
Please make a gift today to support cancer research at Epworth.
