Treatment response to Chemoradiotherapy:

Tour de Cure's funds are assisting the development of a blood-based test for predicting response to Chemoradiotherapy in Oesophageal cancer. There is no current test to predict treatment response. This project will develop relatively non-invasive biomarkers tests using pre-therapy bloods to predict response, which will optimise patient treatment and survival outcome.
