Cancer

Making a difference in cancer care

Cancer remains the second leading cause of death in the industrialised world and its incidence is growing. With around 293,600 new cases of cancer diagnosed each year in the UK, someone is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes in this country (Source: Cancer Research UK).

At Roche, we research, develop and provide innovative tests and treatments for cancer. Our diagnostic solutions help cancer to be identified - early, quickly and accurately. Our targeted therapies aim to give patients the most important thing in life: time to live.

We have a rich history of medical innovation in this field and a promising future with our focus on personalised healthcare - an approach that specifically takes into account emerging knowledge about the molecular pathology of diseases and of patients’ individual characteristics.
