Will we ever get a cure for Cancer?
Author Iain Banks' shock revelation that he has months to live has put cancer back under the microscope. Progress is being made in the battle to beat the disease, with India's refusal to patent leukaemia drug Glivec, giving wider access to targeted treatment, and a £5 saliva test that will identify those at risk of breast and prostate cancers before a tumour appears. The Big Issue asks cancer expert Professor Paul Workman about other frontline research.
