Interesting developments in prostate cancer treatment and research including Stampede Trial - MRC Clinical Trials Unit
Monday, 5th November 2018
The following email from William Everett of the MRC Trials Unit at University College London has been circulated to PC North West members and it might be of interest to you.
I’m writing from the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL. We’re a research unit who run clinical trials in cancer, including prostate cancer trials. I wanted to get in touch because we’ve got some interesting developments that the members of PCS might be interested in.
STAMPEDE Trial – On Thursday 15 November 2018, 2.15pm – 3.00pm, we'll be running a Twitter Q&A session about the STAMPEDE trial - with the hashtag #BeatProstateCancer. We want to raise awareness of prostate cancer research, and share how the STAMPEDE trial is improving prostate cancer treatment, enabling men to live longer. We’re really keen to hear questions and comments from people who have experience of prostate cancer and its treatment.
You can read more about the Q&A here. If any of your group members are on Twitter, and want to join, that’s great; they can ask us a question or share their thoughts by using the hashtag #BeatProstateCancer. If they’re not on Twitter, they can email in questions or thoughts in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll publish a summary of the Twitter Q&A on our website afterwards, so they’ll be able to read the answers there.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
