METUPUK welcomes the approval of Piqray (alpelisib) plus fulvestrant for the treatment of hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative, PIK3CA- mutated advanced breast cancer.
Piqray is an exciting new cancer medicine because it is the first targeted treatment option for advanced breast cancer that has a PIK3CA mutation.
METUPUK are delighted that NICE has accepted Trodelvy (sacituzumab govitecan) for routine use on the NHS in England for the treatment of patients with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer who have received two or more prior lines of systemic therapies. This follows on from the decision to approve Trodelvy in NHS Scotland in March 2022. Wales and Northern Ireland normally follow decisions by NHS England and we hope that Trodelvy will be made available to every patient who is eligible without delay.
