Can dietary fibre improve the outcomes of pelvic cancers

Patients with pelvic cancers, including colorectal, prostate and gynaecological cancers, are treated with surgery and radiotherapy, but not all are cured. Research is investigating the possible use of dietary fibre supplements to improve outcomes.

Prof. Anne Kiltie (Friends of ANCHOR Clinical Chair in Oncology, Honorary Consultant Clinical Oncologist, Rowett Institute) and Mr George Ramsay (Senior Clinical Lecturer, Honorary Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon, Health Services Research Unit) will discuss their work and explain the underlying rationale.
