英國首個早期癌症研究所在劍橋成立

新的劍橋癌症研究醫院的工作也可能在明年開始,這意味着該研究所的發現和新的治療方法將對其工作至關重要。

"但是,除非我們做這項工作,否則我們不會提高大多數病人的生存率。"

對於大多數人來說--大約十分之九--病情不會進一步發展,但對於少數人來說,它可以發展成食道癌。

瑪格麗特說:"我在[今年]2月接到一個電話,說我必須等待更長的時間來做內窺鏡檢查,但他們可以為我提供這種新的海綿測試,"。

她現在每三個月做一次檢查,並被告知,如果發育不良不復發,有可能'燒掉'巴雷特食道組織。

菲茨傑拉德教授說,該中心設在劍橋很重要,她說劍橋有 "在癌症研究方面取得巨大進展的豐富歷史"。

Work could also start next year on the new Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital, meaning that the institute's discoveries and new treatments will be vital to its work.

"But unless we do this work we are not going to improve survival rates for the majority of our patients."

For the majority of people - around nine in 10 - the condition does not progress further, but for a small number of people it can develop into oesophageal cancer.

"I got a call in February [this year] to say that I would have to wait longer for an endoscopy, but that they could offer me this new sponge test," said Margaret.

She now has three-monthly check-ups and has been told that if the dysplasia doesn't return, it may be possible to 'burn off' the Barrett's oesophagus tissue.

Prof Fitzgerald said it was important for the centre to be based in Cambridge, which she said had "a rich history of making huge strides in cancer research".
