Fighting Cancer

The Weizmann Effect: Cancer

A new cancer therapy gives us all hope. This latest breakthrough combines photo-dynamic therapy using laser light with a novel drug to treat early-stage prostate cancer. The combination makes it possible to safely treat cancerous tissue using a minimally invasive procedure, with none of the side effects of surgery or radiation.

The therapy was invented at the Weizmann Institute in Israel, where nearly half our life sciences research is cancer-related. Life-changing therapies are among many rewards of supporting us.
