I had this drug together with 3 others. I am unable to complete the survey as I was on so many other drugs. From my reading this drug can increase the likelihood to achieve a complete pathological response when given with herceptin and others.
From my understanding this is a targeted therapy and during my treatment all the NHS staff in Wales have said to me targeted therapy is the way forward in terms of cancer treatment due to not affecting healthy cells.
I hope your campaign is successful. 🙂
Sorry about that, please try this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/pertuzumab_smc
The Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) are assessing whether or not to recommend pertuzumab (Perjeta) to be available on the NHS in Scotland. Pertuzumab is a treatment for HER2 positive breast cancer. Women who live in England, Wales and Northern Ireland can get it on the NHS, but it's not currently available in Scotland.
We are gathering evidence to tell the SMC what access to pertuzumab would mean and want to hear from: women who have been or are being treated with pertuzumab before surgery in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, or women in Scotland who have HER2 positive breast cancer.
Please help us by completing our short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/pertuzumab_smc
We are looking for responses by Tuesday 18 September.
