Head and Neck Cancer

Head and Neck Cancer Treatment with Photodynamic Therapy

Colin Hopper at University College London Hospital is the only clinician in the UK who offers PD for deeper cancers that would otherwise require surgery. He did offer PDT with a drug called Foscan until NHS England removed the funding for the drug. The decision is, in our opinion, a scandal. To make such a decision without ever approaching Colin for his thoughts was a crass decision.

There is a new PDT trial for advanced head and neck cancers being run by Colin. It is a trial funded by a Scandinavian company, PCI.
