The problem

New and improved therapies are urgently required for ACC, with the 15 year survival rate as low as 40%. One reason for this low rate is that ACC recurrence is common and often spreads to the lungs and perineural space, where the tumour develops chemotherapy resistance which significantly reduces treatment options.
