Late-breaking data: New treatment option for women with recurrent ovarian

cancer

(Embargoed until Monday, 15 September 2008, 16:30 CEST)

Combining the new drug trabectedin with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin provides clinical benefit to women with relapsed ovarian cancer, according to new results. The combination, which importantly does not include a platinum drug, challenges the current standard of treatment for women whose cancer recurs at least 6 months after first-line treatment, said Associate Professor Bradley J. Monk from the University of California Irvine Medical Center.

Patient seminar

An estimated 25 million people alive today have survived cancer, a number that is likely to grow substantially in the future thanks in part to improved treatments such as personalised therapies, leading experts will tell patients at the 7th ESMO Patient Seminar. Providing appropriate care to these survivors, many of whom face lingering medical complications and psychological repercussions, will pose a difficult challenge for healthcare systems around the world.
