You are invited to register to attend the upcoming webinar, Palbociclib (Ibrance) for metastatic ER+ breast cancer - NZ updatepresented by Breast Cancer Foundation NZ (BCFNZ) with Dr Richard Finn (USA). Palbociclib (brand name Ibrance) is a new medicine for advanced ER+ breast cancer that has achieved significant results in high-profile clinical trials overseas. It’s not funded in New Zealand, but some Kiwis have been buying it off-shore, and there will soon be compassionate access for NZ patients that will make it potentially more affordable.
