Friday, 13 November 2015

Conjoint Professor Jim Denham has been awarded more than $376,000 in NHMRC Project Grant funding commencing in 2016 for his research project The role of adjuvant zoledronic acid in locally advanced prostate cancer.


About the project

This project seeks to confirm the highly encouraging early findings from the RADAR prostate cancer trial so that the new treatments tested can be brought in to clinical practice. The trial involved 1071 men at 23 cancer treatment centres in ANZ who had developed extensive cancerous masses in their prostates but without evidence of spread. All received their trial treatments between 2003 and 2007. This project involves the collection and analysis of follow up information up until September 2017.
