The CTC offices are currently closed for refurbishment. Access to trial TMFs and patient records will be limited during this period. We will still be able to receive post during this time, but there may be a small delay in responding to this. Our fax lines may also be subject to disruption. Where possible, please direct all correspondence via email to trial-specific email addresses. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Due to COVID-19 and current government guidance, UCL CTC staff continue to work remotely with limited access to the office. Please continue to email the trial specific mailbox with any urgent queries. For paper CRF trials, please continue to copy and scan CRFs to the trial inboxes (remove all patient identifiers except Trial Number and Initials) until further notice.

ABC-07 trial presented at AMMF conference
01 June 2017
Last month saw the annual conference for the Alan Morement Memorial Fund (AMMF) take place in Stansted, UK, with some of the team behind ABC-07 in attendance to present the trial to a delegation of over 200 clinicians, scientists, patients, families and carers. 

The AMMF is the UK’s only charity dedicated to tackling cholangiocarcinoma, a hard-to-detect cancer of the bile duct which is often diagnosed too late to be eligible for surgery (currently the sole potential cure).

Funded by Cancer Research UK and coordinated by the CTC, ABC-07 has been open at sites across the UK since November 2015. The trial is investigating the results of providing a course of radiotherapy treatment for patients with inoperable bile duct cancer who have already undergone chemotherapy. 

Professor Maria Hawkins, the trial’s CI, remarked: ‘It was a pleasure to attend the AMMF cholangiocarcinoma conference. The day covered the current novel preclinical and clinical research aiming to improve outcomes in cholangiocarcinoma. We thank the fantastic AMMF team for giving us the opportunity to present and raise awareness of the ABC-07 trial and work together towards new research collaborations.’  

More details about ABC-07 can be found here. The AMMF’s website is here
