Breast cancer trial funding

An ANZCA Clinical Trials Network breast cancer pain relief trial has been awarded a $4.3 million grant.

More than 4000 breast cancer patients will be studied as part of a five-year Australian-led international trial into whether lidocaine, a commonly used anaesthetic, can help relieve pain up to a year after their operation.
