I have an blue-sky appointment with my oncologist this week to consider what we're going to do to get me the treatment I need despite living in Wales where access to treatment and drugs can be problematic.
A while ago I blogged about a clinical trials database I found on Target Ovarian Cancer's website. They now have a research manager with a background in clinical research and part of his JD is to research and update their clinical trials database.
This is a fantastic resource as you can search via postcode and distance you're willing to travel, search by date or trials about to be launched. This is particularly important as your local cancer centre may not have trials suitable to your condition and if you're unlucky like me you may live in the 'wrong' part of the UK to have access to the best treatment for Ovarian Cancer. If you're willing to travel there are a lot of new research projects coming online.
The website URL targetovariancancer.org.uk/...
If this doesn't work click on 'site map' at the foot of the Home Page and Clinical Trials are listed under the section, 'I have Ovarian Cancer'.
I hope this is helpful to some of you in the UK.
