APPG on pancreatic cancer inquiry

Postby KATB » Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:33 pm

Hi all,

I don't know how interested people are in this, but as I plan to become more fully involved in raising awareness and funding in time I have found listening to these really very interesting. These are audios from the APPG - if you follow this link you'll see there are several uploaded.

Dear KatB,

These audio recordings of the All Party Parliamentary Group on pancreatic cancer are EXCELLENT! Apart from a few coughs, splutters etc, there is really interesting material here - felt like shouting at them sometimes! I have listened to 2, will listen to the others very soon!

I was really interested to hear that one of the HCPs wanted to use Revlimid in combination with gemcitabine but due to EU restrictions he can't, even though before the directive came in he could have done. Revlimid is currently used quite successfully in myeloma.
