Unfortunately, only 15% patients diagnosed with oesophageal cancer survive 5 years. Part of the reason for the high mortality is the frequently late detection of this cancer, making current treatments less effective. At Ludwig Oxford, we are researching both new early detection methods and new treatment combinations to improve the outcomes of patients with this disease. The CRUK Oxford Centre have highlighted our research in their recent blogs about researchers Tom Carroll, Richard Owen and Barbara Braden.
