response from Cancerbackup
In response to Barbara Mintzes comments, should patient groups accept
money from drug companies? (May 4th) that Cancerbackup does not list the
possible side effects of trastuzumab, or say where our funding comes from
– this is not the case.
First, Cancerbackup provides up to date and accurate information
about treatment including all possible side effects, both on our website
and in our factsheets.
Secondly, we provide a full list on our website and now in our press
releases of all funders.
We are advised by an independent Clinical Advisory Board.
Pharmaceutical companies have no influence on any decision we take.
