The APCB is proud to announce that in February of this year, 5,000 men where recruited to our national repository. This figure marks a national milestone for the APCB which began collections in October 2005. It is through the dedication of the APCB node coordinators, the APCB executive committee and the associated clinicians and staff that the APCB owes this great achievement to.

Importantly, we would not have been able to reach this milestone without the support and participation of our donors. We thank all the men who have donated to our tissue bank in what would have been a difficult time for them and their families. It is this self-less contribution and ‘anything we can do to help’ attitude which has paved the way for some great advancements in prostate medical research. There is a vast array of research being conducted, both nationally and internationally, with the specimens and data the APCB has acquired over the last 9 years.
