Cancer Charity GIST Support UK celebrate the NICE Approval of Regorafenib for GIST Cancer Patients
Today GIST Support UK, the key charity specifically focused on combating GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumour), celebrated the NICE decision to approve regorafenib, a life extending drug, as a third line treatment for GIST cancer patients in England, ensuring that they have access to the same key drug as provided to patients in Scotland and Wales.
Nic Puntis & Jayne Bressington (on behalf of GIST Support UK) said:
“We welcome the NICE decision to recommend access to regorafenib as it offers greater long-term treatment options for patients with GIST. Importantly, GIST patients in England will now have routine access to this important treatment, joining patients currently living in Scotland and Wales.
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to review and approve regorafenib.”
