“The £42 million TRANSFORM trial, the biggest prostate cancer screening trial in 20 years, could save the lives of thousands of men each year.” – Prostate Cancer UK

Prostate Cancer UK is launching this new initiative – the TRANSFORM trial – to improve the way we screen men for prostate cancer.

It is the most ambitious trial in prostate cancer screening for 20 years and has been put together by the NHS, the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and the UK Government. Funding has also come from the UK Government, Movember and the Freddie Green and Family Charitable Foundation and others.

The TRANSFORM trial, will target hundreds of thousands of men for screening. 12,000 men die of prostate cancer each year, it is the most common cancer in the UK and yet doesn’t have a screening programme.
