Our Mission / Objective

We are a group of world-leading breast cancer doctors and researchers based in Australia and New Zealand with a commitment to exploring and finding better treatments for people affected by breast cancer through clinical trials research.

We are on a mission for people affected by breast cancer to live better, to live longer and to never die from breast cancer. And we support all leading breast cancer researchers and organisations around the world in this vital work.

We have saved the lives of millions of people affected by breast cancer since our inception in 1978.

Our work in Australia and New Zealand is supported by a team of full-time professional staff who manage our clinical trials and raise the money we need to do the work we do.

Financial independence means we are free from the influence or control of other interest groups, and are able to initiate our own investigator-driven and community-driven clinical trials that service the common good of all people affected by breast cancer.

We were the first clinical trials research organisation to establish a Consumer Advisory Panel comprising of women who have a personal experience of breast cancer. They keep us in touch with real community needs and help us deliver patient-centred outcomes.

We are grounded and defined by one simple belief: We can and we will find new and better treatments and prevention strategies for every person affected by breast cancer that saves lives today, tomorrow and forever.

Our Vision

To make the world a better place by improving and saving the lives of people affected by breast cancer. Today, tomorrow and forever.

Our Mission

To conduct the highest quality clinical trials research that produces real treatment outcomes for people affected by breast cancer.

Clinical Trials

What is a Clinical Trial

Clinical trials are an important aspect of developing new and improved health care initiatives. Breast cancer clinical trials are designed to answer scientific questions, which may result in the identification of new and improved treatment options and preventative therapies.
 
Clinical trials are necessary to find out if new treatments are more effective than those currently accepted as the best available standard treatment.
All of the major milestones in controlling breast cancer worldwide have come through clinical trials. These include:
  • Chemotherapy and hormone treatment prevents recurrence and saves lives;
  • Mammograms save lives through earlier detection;
  • Removing just the cancer and preserving the breast is a safe and effective treatment for most women;
  • Breast cancer can be prevented in some women at increased risk;
  • Treatments targeted to the specific type of breast cancer can improve outcomes substantially.
All new treatments and procedures must be scientifically proven through clinical trials research before they can be adopted as standard treatment for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
 
People take part in clinical trials for many reasons including:
  • They may be able to access a new treatment before it is routinely available as standard treatment for all breast cancer patients;
  • The treatments offered on a clinical trial include the best current standard treatment, compared with a new treatment which earlier research shows may be better;
  • Participating in a clinical trial helps to advance medical knowledge;
  • Many clinical trial participants are motivated to take part because the results of current clinical trials may help improve treatments and outcomes for future women diagnosed with breast cancer or who are at risk.
Clinical trial participants may be monitored more closely than patients who receive standard treatment and their treatment is rigorously documented. There are usually questionnaires to complete regarding the participant’s feelings or reactions to the treatment. This careful follow up means that the outcomes of the clinical trial are the result of accurate and detailed information which is then published in peer reviewed scientific journals.
