POETIC TRIAL

We now have R and D and Ethics Approval for this Clinical Trial.

It is known as the Trial of Perioperative Endocrine Therapy-Individualising Care(POETIC).  This trial is for post-menopausal women with breast cancer and is looking at whether having hormone therapy for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery helps improve outcomes in postmenopausal women with breast cancer.  The  Breast Cancer Clinical Trials Team at St. Margaret's Hospital, Epping and PAH, Harlow are recruiting patients into this trial.
