Innovative cancer drugs delayed

Wednesday January 29th, 2020

The licensing of the most innovative cancer treatments is taking longer than necessary, depriving many patients of potential care, a British expert alleges today.

The report is released today (29 January) by The Institute of Cancer Research, London, UK. It examines the time taken to pass through clinical trials, licensing and appraisal for availability on the NHS, for innovative versus more conventional cancer treatments.

Study leader Professor Paul Workman and his team found that the higher the level of innovation of a cancer drug, the longer this process takes. The researchers analysed the reasons why the system of drug discovery and development appears to be risk averse to innovative drugs, which ”play an essential role in tackling cancer evolution and drug resistance - the biggest challenge in cancer research and treatment today”.
