Paul Edwards Posted March 16, 2014 Share Posted March 16, 2014 Xofigo is a new drug which significantly increases life expectancy and quality of life for men with castration-resistant prostate cancer who have bone metastases. Xofigo has already been approved for use in the United States, United Kingdom and Europe. The Medical Services Advisory Committee is meeting next month (April ) to consider whether to approve Xofigo for use in Australia. You can help to get Xofigo approved for use in Australia. Please write a letter of support to Professor Robyn Ward, the Chair of Medical Services Advisory Committee and to your local Federal Member of Parliament, as soon as possible. Ask your family and friends to write too. The campaign to have Xofigo approved for use in Australia is being organised by the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. Please see attached a letter from Dr Anthony Lowe, Chief Executive Officer of PCFA. Also attached is a sample letter for you to use, should you wish, some tips and suggestions for writing your own letter, and a list of key contact people to address.
