Safeway Inc. and PCF to fund landmark prostate cancer research collaboration
Date:11/15/2007

search vision of the Prostate Cancer Foundation," emphasized Simons. "This program would not have happened without Safeway and its long-standing commitment to helping find a cure for prostate cancer. We are literally turning up the heat on metastatic prostate cancer research." Prostate cancer strikes more than 218,000 men each year making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men. It also is one of the most deadly cancers, with more than 27,000 men dying each year from the disease, making it second only to lung cancer as a leading cause of cancer deaths in men.

"Supporting this kind of innovative research has become a trademark of the Prostate Cancer Foundation, and the principle reason Safeway developed a relationship with the organization more than seven years ago," said Safeway Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Steve Burd. "We are pleased and honored to be associated with the S.T.A.R. Program initiative and what promises to be pioneering work by some of the world's top cancer researchers," Mr. Burd said.

In another innovative effort, the S.T.A.R. Program will convene a "think tank" of some 70 experts in different areas of oncology from across the nation to explore the question of why current therapies cure some types of cancer but not others. The learnings from this effort will give direction to future research on prostate cancer and other types of common solid tumors that are currently the most difficult to treat.

"We are grateful to the leadership of Safeway and the Prostate Cancer Foundation for this special effort," said Robert Getzenberg, Ph.D., Director of Research, Brady Urological Institute, Johns Hopkins. "This unique approach and highly interactive team will develop these new concepts and extend them from the laboratory through testing in clinical trials to the patient setting," Getzenberg said.

The theory that heat can be used to help kill cancer cells comes from an observation and review of sci
