World Cancer Day
Most of us do not often think about Cancer in our daily life. This is why Health Awareness Days do make a difference. They can bring our attention to cancer among other medical conditions we may never have encountered or even heard about. Though, they are really significant.
World Cancer Day, first organized by the International Union against Cancer in 2005, takes place on February 4th. “2019 marks the launch of the 3-year ‘I Am and I Will’ campaign. ‘I Am and I Will’ is an empowering call-to-action urging for personal commitment and represents the power of individual action taken now to impact the future.”
We are proud to say that cancer is one of the GCT’s main foci, contributing 21 % to the total number of studies. Conducting clinical research since 2001, GCT has completed cancer studies in indications like prostate, ovarian, breast and small cell lungcancer. At the moment, we are conducting a number of cancer trials for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (Ph. II), Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma (Ph. I / II) and Liver Cancer (Device Study).
We believe that studying Cancer is crucial. Awareness campaigns are a chance to understand, to relate to, and to help those in need. In our turn, we will continue researching cancer cures and investigating their potential risks and benefits.
