Drugs are one of the cornerstones in cancer treatment. In our last Hangout, we talked about the drug discovery process, and what makes a good medicine (if you missed it, you can watch it here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXNeWkbVaGE). But what are the next steps? How do we actually get these new treatments into patients? How long will it before we know whether a treatment is working? And what is it like for a patient to be on a clinical trial?

Join us as we explore this complex topic with a Google Hangout on Air, featuring Dr Emma Dean and Diane Brooks. Emma is a Medical Oncologist and Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester, and Diane is a patient currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

This hangout will be broadcast on 20 July 2016 at 3.30 PM, and hosted by Dr Emma Smith and Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe. You can watch the broadcast live, or catch up afterwards on YouTube. Join the conversation using #CRUKHangout, or leave your questions on this event page.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Cancer Research UK. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Our scientists have developed a new way to test hundreds of cancer drugs and drug combinations in cells that are very similar to those found in the original tumour. They believe their new method will help speed up the identification of new cancer drugs, and ultimately help them reach patients faster. http://po.st/dqVcpx
Our scientists have developed a new, more accurate way to test hundreds of cancer drugs at the same time.

The public don’t know obesity causes cancer, and that’s really worrying. Read our analysis of new figures we released today: http://po.st/5Aipj9
Our latest figures reveal that three in four people aren’t aware that obesity causes cancer.

Gifts left in wills play a huge role in helping us beat cancer sooner. Find out the inspiring story behind one legacy gift, which helped fund an important clinical trial for a rare type of cancer: http://po.st/9s5cIs
Right now, people are doing amazing things to support our life-saving research. From flipping pancakes to pedalling for victory – every penny donated helps us beat cancer sooner. But while events and challenges may be the first to spring to mind when you think of fundraising, more subtle acts of generosity also play a huge [...]

Cervical screening prevents 70% of all cervical cancer deaths; e-cigarettes could be helping thousands stop smoking in England each year; prostate cancer patients could be spared unnecessary treatment, and could a Pac-Man-like molecule help in the battle against breast cancer? Here’s our weekly news digest: http://po.st/RrzRhi
This week, Cancer Research UK scientists published a study that showed the impact of cervical screening in preventing cases of cervical cancer, as well as deaths from the disease. More than two thirds of deaths from the disease are prevented by screening. Although most women take up their screening invite, as the Guardian and many others reported, if all [...]

Decades of work by our scientists helped in the development of a promising new class of drugs. So where are we now? Find out more: http://po.st/5Cz1yH
With the phrase often touted by the media, it can be difficult to keep track of the ‘next big thing’ in cancer treatment. PARP inhibitors are a relatively new type of cancer drug that have been branded as such. And not without reason. These drugs exploit genetic weaknesses in cells by preventing the cells from [...]
