Anti-cancer polysaccharides from foods

£36,111 in autumn 2013 to the Institute of Food Research, Norwich.

Polysaccharides are molecules made up of multiple sugar molecules linked together.  They are found in common food sources, and include chemicals such as starch and cellulose.  Many polysaccharides are known to affect the immune system, and offer a promising target for cost-effective (and possibly less toxic) cancer treatments.

In several trials, cancer patients taking a polysaccharide found in mushrooms showed better survival following surgery.  This grant funds a study to assess the ability of various natural polysaccharides to activate the immune system and to investigate how this activation takes place.  This will produce information that could help with the design and development of new cancer treatments.

We can help to improve your quality of life, physical health, and mental wellbeing.

Some people take to the skies, run, jump, walk, swim and cycle whilst others make tea, bake cakes or shave heads.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
