Lymphoedema and Nexavar (sorafenib)

Hi All

I don’t suppose any of will have been particularly pleased to read of the latest NICE rulings drugs for advanced kidney cancer.

You may be interested to know that Nexavar (sorafenib), one of the treatments that has been discarded because of cost, has been linked to an improvement in lymphoedema in a cancer clinic in Australia.

There is a fair bit of ino on the net, but at the moment you have to pay to get to read the full details (I’ve decided to hang on for a bit and hope that more information becomes avaibale for nothing before too long!)

However, if anyone wants to google ‘lymphoedema + sorafenib’ or ‘lymphoedema + nexavar’, it is possible to find out a little more for no extra cost.

Bye for now
