The last 3 months have again been busy, and we are pleased to annouce the Activation of 5 new sites - G. Kuppuswamy Naidu Memorial Hospital at Coimbatore, Christian Medical College at Vellore, Adventist Hospital Penang, Dr Sardjito Hospital in Yogyarkarta, and the Sixth Affilate Hospital in Guangzhou.

Doug Hanahan and Bob Weinberg have recently updated their seminal paper - The Hallmarks of Cancer - Cell;100: 57-70 (2000) - which incidentally is also the most highly cited Cell paper of all time. In their recent update - the authors recognised 2 enabling characteristics that allows cells to survive, proliferate and disseminate. The first is Genomic Instability, and the second - Tumor Promoting Inflammation. Amongst the new armamentarium of targeted therapies - they have also included selective anti-inflammatory drugs (Cell 144:646-674 [2011]). So it is with tremendous optimism that we push on with this scientifically and socially important ASCOLT study. Aspirin - the grand old dame, might be ahead of this game - and at least for now - has never looked more sexy!
