OverSubscribed Podcast Partners with Breast Cancer Trials

Alana Nixon and Laura Jackel of local podcast Oversubscribed, have joined forces with Australia’s oldest and most respected breast cancer research organisation, Breast Cancer Trials (BCT) for season five of the podcast.

The duo hopes to use their podcast platform, which has been engaging thousands of women across Australia and New Zealand each week to promote some ground-breaking new research.

Breast Cancer Trials is now recruiting for a world-first clinical trial designed to help women with the BRCA 1 gene mutation, who have an approximate 70% risk of developing breast cancer and 40% risk of developing ovarian cancer over their lifetime.

“Currently, for these women the most commonly used preventative option is the surgical removal of their breasts and/or ovaries,” said Dr Nick Zdenkowski, medical oncologist and BCT Medical Advisor.

“The new BRCA P clinical trial is testing whether a drug called Denosumab is effective in preventing breast cancer in women who carry this BRCA1 gene mutation. Breast Cancer Trials aims to recruit at least 300 women to the trial across 15 hospitals in Australia, as part of an international recruitment target of just under 3000.”

The Oversubscribed duo will be releasing a special episode about this ground-breaking new research to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

Season five launched on Thursday 24 September and will run until the end of November 2020 and will discuss (among other things) imposter syndrome, the US election, the wellness industry, women’s health and Harry and Meghan!
