Early stage breast cancer trial opens
50 Patients in Cork, Waterford and Dublin to get access to drug not yet approved in Ireland for early stage breast cancer
The Irish arm of a global cancer trial which will involve 4,600 patients in 500 hospitals around the world has been opened in Ireland by Cancer Trials Ireland and is looking for 50 Irish patients to take part.
The trial will investigate whether the new drug palbociclib will decrease the chance of cancer recurring in women and men with early stage HR positive /HER2 negative breast cancer when given in combination with the current standard anti-hormone therapy.
Known as the PALLAS trial it will be run in 6 hospitals in Ireland; Cork University Hospital, University Hospital Waterford, and in Dublin, Mater Hospital, Beaumont Hospital, St James’s Hospital and St Vincent’s University Hospital.
Patients interested in taking part in the trial should contact their Medical Oncologist.
