Drug Shows Promising Results in Pancreatic Cancer!

Postby PCUK Nurse Jeni » Fri Jan 25, 2013 1:38 pm

Hi,

At the recent ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncology) conference, announcements were made about the drug ABRAXANE (Nab-Paclitaxel) and its use in metastatic pancreatic cancer. Results of clinical trials showed some promising benefit from the drug, when combined with gemcitabine.

You can read more about this here:

We look forward to hearing more about this, and in particular, its licencing for use in the UK.
