Brief description The Australian Prostate Cancer Collaboration (APCC), supported by the Commonwealth Bank, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Andrology Australia, has been developing an Australia-wide network of prostate tissue banks and associated clinical databases for the past 3 years. The concept of this innovative project is to establish “nodes” or branches of the tissue bank in each State where tissues are collected and to coordinate the use of this material from a central committee or “head office”. A website has been established ( that is the national face of this ‘virtual’ national tissue bank and 7 State-based tissue bank consortiums are participating in this venture. The goal of this ‘virtual bank’ or network is to further enhance the national research effort by facilitating greater collaboration nationally and providing better access to, and optimal utilisation of, the clinical material available to facilitate improvements in prostate cancer management. Operational support for the nodes is critical for the success of a national Bio-Resource.
