Our successful crowdfunding campaign
We raised £2million for the first-ever crowdfunded clinical trial.
We are really excited to announce that the trial has now begun and the first patient is receiving the treatment.
The Financial Times recently declared it, ‘the most successful crowdfunding campaign of its kind ever.’
Our campaign went viral, generated a lot of press coverage and trended all around the world.
A promising treatment
The potential treatment, an oncolytic virus for neuroendocrine tumours which (potentially) targets and destroys the cancer cells and amplifies the anti-cancer cell immune response, is named Advince, in honour of Vince Hamilton – who contributed a significant sum to the project.
Filming the first patient
We flew to Sweden to meet the first patient from our crowdfunded clinical trial and made a short film with him and the researchers at Uppsala University who designed the trial.
