Why do cancer patients need new treatment options?
For some patients standard cancer treatments may no longer help. This can be for many reasons; for example the patient may become intolerant to treatment, the treatment may not be available or the treatment may no longer be working.
What can the Care Oncology Clinic offer me?
The Care Oncology Clinic is a leading London cancer clinic, providing treatments that complement your existing cancer treatment, but have fewer side effects, thereby offering an improved quality of life.
The Care Oncology Clinic is staffed by a team of leading oncologists and palliative care doctors, who are currently offering this approach to cancer treatment as part of the clinic’s ongoing clinical studies. In time, the clinic hopes to have enough clinical data to support the case for making this effective and affordable approach to cancer treatment open to all cancer patients on the NHS.
The medicines used in our cancer studies have already been used by large numbers of people for long periods of time. This means that their side effects are well understood and easily managed. In addition, individually, each of these medicines has been shown to slow the growth rate of cancer cells.
The Care Oncology Clinic’s most recent study is evaluating the effectiveness and tolerability of ‘combinations’ of these established medicines on the growth rate of cancers to determine their potential in slowing down the growth and spread of cancer cells. The Care Oncology Clinic will be studying the effects of these treatments in various different cancers, while treating patients at the same time.
