Your gift to the Cellular Therapies appeal could help save the life of someone with cancer.
Imagine if the human body had the ability to fight or even cure cancer.
At Epworth, dedicated researchers and clinicians are making this a reality with their ground-breaking research into immunotherapy.
Recognised as one of Australia’s leading centres of excellence in oncology and haematology, Epworth is working with some of Australia’s best scientists in the application of cell therapy to treat blood cancers with ground-breaking results.
Please help provide cancer patients with life-saving therapy by giving to the Cellular Therapies Service at Epworth.
Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cells or CAR-T cells are the future of cancer treatment. And Epworth is at the forefront, providing this life-saving this therapy to cancer patients.
Essentially, CAR-T cells helps the body’s own immune system to kill cancer cells.
“CAR-T cell therapy has an extraordinary 90% cure rate of one of the most common forms of blood cancer in our country. In future, we expect CAR-T cell treatment will replace bone marrow transplants.
The establishment of a Cellular Therapies Service at Epworth will bring CAR-T cell therapy to more Australian cancer patients and ultimately, help save lives.” Professor Miles Prince AM, world-renowned haematologist and Director of Epworth’s Molecular Oncology and Cancer Immunology Unit (MOCI).
Please make a gift today to support the Cellular Therapies Service at Epworth.
Your gift could help save the life of someone with cancer.
Your contribution to the establishment of a dedicated Cellular Therapies Service at Epworth is critical to advancements in cancer treatment. You will have a real and immediate impact on cancer patients now and in the future.
Your donation today will help ensure that every cancer patient at Epworth has access to the best medical treatment and care available.
Your gift will help:
- Ensure more patients have access to CAR-T cell therapy treatment
- Support further research into CAR-T cell therapy for other cancers such as ovarian cancer, breast cancer and melanoma
And excitingly, by harnessing the body’s own immune system CAR-T cell therapy provides real hope for a potential cure for cancer.
“Importantly, because the CAR-T therapy delivers a virus to the DNA of the T cell, if the cancer reoccurs in the future, the T cell will recognise and kill the cancer cells.
“This provides extraordinary hope for cancer treatment in the future. And a dedicated laboratory to find out more about Cell Therapies is vital to keep us at the forefront of immunotherapy. Ultimately, it will help us save more lives.” Professor Miles Prince.
Please make a gift today and help give cancer patients hope for a cure.
