Our giant cell tumour research

Over the years lots of our research has benefited giant cell tumour of the bone (OTB) patients, including research undertaken by Professor Athanasou who explored a promising new therapy to prevent osteoclast formation resulting in reduced tumour growth, bone destruction and the associated pain that presents with these tumour types.

More recently, our nano-kicking research undertaken by Dr Tsimbouri discovered wide promise for primary bone cancer patients and patients suffering from other orthopaedic conditions such as osteoporosis, stress fractures or spinal traumas. Not only did the application of nano-kicking slow the growth of tumour cells, it may be a useful technique to aid the incorporation of bone grafts and implants used in limb-salvage surgery; creating a novel, exciting and life-changing method with huge potential in the clinic and in the improvement of giant cell tumour OTB patients' quality-of-life.

More giant cell tumour OTB research is desperately needed and your sponsorship will enable us to grow research in this area. You can read more about our other giant cell tumour OTB projects that your sponsorship will help support here.

Why become a monthly giant cell tumour Research Sponsor?

From just £5 a month, you will provide giant cell tumour OTB researchers with consistent funding to fuel their work, providing them with vital equipment, materials and essential laboratory time. Your monthly support will ensure we can commit to giant cell tumour OTB research projects and see potential new treatments through to clinical trial. We will send you regular progress reports and promise to keep you up to date on all our latest exciting developments. We’ll even invite you to lab open days so you can see how your sponsorship is helping and you’ll get to meet our researchers.

By becoming a giant cell tumour OTB Research Sponsor, 100% of your sponsorship will go to our giant cell tumour OTB research and will be used on the giant cell tumour OTB projects where the need is greatest.

*In the event that we do not have a current giant cell tumour OTB research project, we will direct your sponsorship to projects aimed at all primary bone cancers where there is a direct benefit to giant cell tumour OTB patients.
