World Cancer Day 2016

To mark World Cancer Day, Cancer Research UK are taking a look at how research that is happening in partnership with other countries is making the future brighter for cancer patients across the globe.

The Add-Aspirin trial, running in the UK, and soon to be India, is looking at whether aspirin can prevent cancer from coming back.

"Every day we see patients who are unable to afford the costs of expensive cancer therapy - they would benefit greatly from in inexpensive form of cancer treatment like aspirin," says Dr Conjeevaram Pramesh, from the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, leading the Add-Aspirin trial in India. "There is immense potential for a simple, cost-effective treatment like aspirin to help people with Cancer in India and other resource-poor countries."

But importantly, people should not start taking aspirin without first speaking to their doctor, as aspirin isn't suitable for everyone and it can have serious side effects. Please speak to your oncologist or research nurse if you would like to join the Add-Aspirin trial.
