Trodelvy Now! Latest Update

Trodelvy Approved by NICE

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.

Improving access to new breast cancer drugs

When I first started volunteering with METUPUK, I wasn’t really sure what I would do. For a few months, I sat on the sides to get a feel for the organisation. I shared METUPUK links on social media, but I don’t have much of a social media presence, and Instagram is a bit of a mystery to me. I’ve never figured out how to do makeup, plus my hair is a non-event after chemo. I thought I wanted to help with drug access or access to clinical trials, but I was flexible and wanted to see what was needed.
