Challenge NICE on enzalutamide

NICE (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) have announced  that men with advanced prostate cancer will be able to get enzalutamide after they've had chemotherapy, but only if they haven't had abiraterone first.

This decision is very unfair and will mean that men and their doctors will have to make an agonising decision about which treatment to try at an already very difficult time. Men with advanced prostate cancer do not have a lot of treatment options, and we don't think NICE should be placing this restriction on men.

Sign and share our petition. This will take less than two minutes, but could make a huge difference to the men affected by this decision.
