A new ‘pot’ is being established by the Elizabeth Coteman Fund to allow grants to be made to cover the expenses of those attending clinical trials.
Some of those patients who are deemed appropriate to attend clinical trials travel long distances and, in some cases, the cost of travelling could be prohibitive. The team at the Cambridge Pancreatic Cancer Centre believe that getting more people who are diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer onto trials is the way forward to improve outcomes.
Dr Bristi Basu, Cancer Research UK Consultant Medical Oncologist, and a member of the team at the Cambridge Pancreatic Cancer Centre, welcomed the move by the Fund to support trials’ patients.
“We know that some people will find it difficult to attend trials due to the cost of travel and the decision by Elizabeth Coteman Fund to support some of these people is a wonderful boost.”
