Cardiff researchers bring together their knowledge and expertise to develop and trial innovative treatments that will give patients a better chance of surviving cancer.
Join Dr Sadie Jones, Senior Clinical Lecturer & Consultant Gynaecology Oncology Surgeon as she shares with us details of an exciting and pioneering surgical technique being developed to treat and shrink secondary abdominal (ovarian, stomach & bowel) cancers. By spraying aerosol chemotherapy directly into the abdominal cavity during key-hole surgery, this targeted medicine promises to be a better and more effective treatment, with fewer toxic side-effects and risks to patients.
