Introducing SABR treatment for pancreatic cancer

26 January 2022

In Autumn 2020, Pancreatic Cancer UK helped to submit a proposal to NHS England, asking them to commission a type of radiotherapy called SABR (Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy), for people with locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). Now, SABR treatment has been commissioned for rollout in England, thanks to a group of healthcare professionals and Pancreatic Cancer UK's Research Involvement Network (RIN).
