New Trials Opening Soon

RESPECT: Response Evaluation of Cancer Therapeutics in Metastatic Breast Cancer to the Bone: Whole-Body MRI Study.

This trial is for patients with bone-only metastatic breast cancer. The trial aims to investigate the use of whole-body MRI scanning as a method of investigating treatment response of secondary cancer in the bone.
RESPECT is not investigating a new cancer treatment, so patients can be eligible irrespective of the type of treatment that they are receiving.

For further information, please contact the Mount Vernon Breast Cancer Research Unit team.
