Prostate Cancer Research

    District Chair: Norm Jensen - Email

The Lions Prostate Cancer Research and Treatment Project is to support the development of medical services for research and treatment of Prostate Cancer. Lions Clubs throughout Australia show their support by donations to purchase specific laboratory equipment. Through our collaboration with the Mater Prostate Cancer Research laboratory (MMRI), this equipment will be established in their Mater Prostate Cancer Research laboratory, to help develop a immunotherapy treatment of patients with prostate cancer.

Thanks to the Lions Clubs of Australia, through your generous donations to the project, we were able to purchase this latest state of the art research equipment for the Mater Medical Research Institute. The AutoMac device, at a cost of $75,000.00 will be used to separate the cancer stem cells from Prostate and Bowel tumors. Stem cells are used to watch how aggressive these cancers develop by comparing them to normal or benign samples, furthering understanding of this disease.
