£1m For Oxford Prostate Cancer Research

An Oxford researcher has been awarded almost £1m from Cancer Research UK to investigate a new form of treatment for prostate cancer.

Dr Richard Bryant will use the cash injection to investigate combining a new form of treatment alongside conventional radiotherapy for men with advanced or aggressive forms of prostate cancer.

If his research proves to be both safe and effective for patients, Dr Bryant believes it could be "game-changing" for men diagnosed with the disease in the future.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the United Kingdom and around 500 men are diagnosed in Oxfordshire every year.
