4.30 The role of oxygen by Dr Robert Lyons (Hungary)
A low oxygen state is referred to as being hypoxic. Hypoxic tumours are more aggressive and more resistant to all cancer treatments. Where there is low oxygen there is also a greater risk of the disease spreading. For this reason, there is an increase of interest in oxygen and oxygen therapies for cancer, and your clients are highly likely to ask you about it. In this lecture, Dr Robert Lyons will explain the research behind oxygen, hypoxia and cancer so that attendees can be informed when responding to questions from their clients.
