Roy Castle lung cancer research funding
Date:3/12/2014

LIVERPOOL, UK 12 March 2014: The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation has funded two new projects at the University of Liverpool which aim to improve survival rates for the UK's biggest cancer killer.

Professor John Field, a Clinical Professor of Molecular Oncology, will receive 200,000 for the Liverpool Lung Project (LLP). The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation has invested 20m over 23 years into lung cancer research, including funding the Liverpool Lung Project for 18 years. The LLP is now recognised internationally as one of the major lung cancer cohort studies, which has made very significant contributions to early lung cancer research.

The Liverpool Lung Project is the largest of its kind in Europe with over 12,000 participants. The information for this large study has provided a method of identifying high risk individuals for further investigations. This included the LLP Risk Model which has been utilised in the recent UK Lung Cancer CT screening trial.

The LLP research programme focuses on Liverpool, as it has the most cases of lung cancer in the country and the wide range of valuable specimens has enabled the discovery and validation of a number of early lung cancer diagnostic biomarkers.

Researchers recruit people who are attending hospital for tests, as well as people who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and ask them to complete a short lifestyle questionnaire. They are also asked to give a blood sample, a swab from inside their mouth and, in some cases, a tissue sample. The information and samples are then used to help to identify groups of people who are at a high risk of developing lung cancer.

Professor Field said: "The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation has provided the means to develop and implement early lung cancer detection techniques which would have been impossible without their support. Their investment in the Liverpool Lung Project has made a major impact on lung cancer research
