Managing the side effects of cancer treatment is one of the biggest challenges in medicine, a consultant oncologist at University College London Hospitals said today, after the launch of a new drug with less side effects.
Dr Heather Payne said:
The launch of Xtandi represents a major advance in the treatment of patients with advanced prostate cancer.
One of the biggest challenges in cancer medicine is managing the side effects that come with treatment, so it is remarkable to find a new therapy which makes patients' feel better.
Extending patients' lives at this stage of their disease is our primary aim, but it's incredibly important to balance this with the impact treatment may have on patients' quality of life.
