Topic: Genetic Risk Factor Study / Imperial College, London UK

Although this research has been carried out in the UK, I thought it might be of interest to all our cc family:

A recent study at Imperial College has investigated whether or not specific genes involved in tumour immunity are associated with the development of sporadic cholangiocarcinoma. The results suggest that a wider study assessing the differences in many genes between people with and without cholangiocarcinoma may reveal genetic risk factors for the development of this cancer.

This research, carried out by Dr Chris Wadsworth and colleagues and supported by AMMF, was awarded

Thank you so much for your kind words, Gavin and Marion ...

I have never thought of myself as a warrior, Marion, but I quite like the idea!! And I guess what we are all involved in is a bit like a war - many battles and skirmishes to be overcome before we achieve that victory.
