‘Cancer World’ magazine cover story: the IBTA adds its voice to the debate

By 14th April 2017IBTA News

Cancer World March 2017[14th April 2017] The cover article and leading feature in the latest issue of Cancer World magazine, which explores how brain tumour research has evolved since the “new beginning” of temozolomide therapy more than a decade ago, includes comment from the International Brain Tumour Alliance.

Featuring interviews with a variety of leading clinicians and researchers, the piece highlights the ‘frustratingly slow’ progress in finding new brain tumour treatments and stresses the importance of international academic research collaborations. Kathy Oliver, Chair of the IBTA, explains that patients, families and advocacy networks need to play a role driving progress in brain tumours. “In my opinion, trials will recruit faster if patients are involved in helping to design them,” says Kathy Oliver.

Established in 2004, Cancer World is a magazine published by European School of Oncology that has a print circulation of approximately 16,000. It is distributed at major conferences, mailed to subscribers and to European opinion leaders free-of-charge. You can read “Tackling brain tumours – Meet the doctors set on taming this toughest of cancers” alongside the rest of the March issue online here.  A full catalogue of back issues is available here.
