+ £158.75 Gift Aid
Buildbase have been working in partnership with Cancer Research UK since 2013. This year Buildbase, Electricbase and Hirebase employees are taking on their toughest fundraising challenge yet and are aiming to raise £125,000 for CRUK’s life saving work. Funds raised will be used to help fund a clinical trial that is finding the right treatment combination for men with prostate cancer. Results from 2017 for this trial showed combining the drug abiraterone with other hormone therapies at the start of treatment improves survival by 37% “These are the most powerful results I’ve seen from a prostate cancer trial – it’s a ‘one in a career’ feeling. This is one of the biggest reductions in death I’ve seen in any clinical trial for adult cancers” Professor Nick James. £125,000 will support all of the running costs for this trial for a period of 9 months. Procurement, Marketing & Price File Maintenance have chosen to walk 25miles around Milton Keynes on Thursday 30th May. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will help towards the company target of £125,000. Thank you for your support.
Stampede trial for Prostate Cancer research
Since 2005, we’ve been funding a clinical trial called STAMPEDE to find the best treatment for men with newly diagnosed, advanced prostate cancer. The trial is actually many different trials in one, looking at new combinations of treatments to identify which are most effective at beating this disease. STAMPEDE has now recruited more than 11,000 patients and results from the trial have already led to a change in how men are treated. This demonstrates the power of trials in getting promising treatments to the clinic as quickly as possible.
