Some weekend reading: "Cancer rates predicted to increase!"

Some weekend reading for our incoming Applicans!

Remember that NICE look at cost-effectiveness of treatment looking at QALYs (Quality-adjusted life years). If you are interested in the drug (palbociclib) that is mentioned, you can also have a look at this article to look at the studies which suggest the drug could almost double the median survival time of advanced breast cancer compared to the currently used treatment.
