Each year in Australia over 1000 people are diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), an aggressive blood cancer. Less than one third of AML patients survive 5 years beyond diagnosis. Researchers from Monash University have discovered a key reason why this disease is so difficult to treat and therefore cure.

Prostate cancer is one of Australia’s biggest killers: 1 in 7 Australian men will be diagnosed with the disease by the age of 85.

It’s no wonder our scientists, at research labs in Melbourne, are working hard to arrest these figures.

CSIRO scientists are developing a way to improve the body’s defences against prostate cancer (and a host of other cancers) and their research is focussed on a specific protein called E6AP.

It turns out there are certain types of proteins in our bodies with the potential to destroy other proteins that protect us from cancer developing.
