Last year in the UK over 60,000 cancer patients enrolled on clinical trials aimed at improving cancer treatments and making them available to all.
A study of pembrolizumab and usual treatment for cervical cancer (The Papaya Study)
This study looked at whether pembrolizumab could improve treatment for cancer of the cervix.
More about this trial
- see if adding pembrolizumab to standard treatment keeps the cancer under control for longer
- learn more about the side effects
Summary of results
It was difficult to get enough women to join the trial. So the trial was never finished and there are no results available.
