Have a look at how we are constantly developing ways to fight this battle.
How we’ve made a difference
Established the largest cohort of breast cancer patients and health controls, where >8,000 women have contributed to a study to uncover the links between diet, lifestyle, and genetic factors with breast cancer risk in Malaysians.
Established Malaysia’s first cancer prevention trial, testing the effect of drinking 2 glasses of soy a day on risk of developing breast cancer.
Identified potential ways of stimulating patients’ immune systems so that their own immune system can help prevent pre-cancerous growths from transforming into cancers.
What we’re doing now
Our scientists are working with researchers at the Malaysian Palm Oil Board to evaluate the impact of anti-oxidants from palm oil on the risk of breast cancer in Asian women.
Our scientists are working with researchers at the University of Liverpool in developing a vaccine for the prevention and treatment of oral and nasopharyngeal cancers.
