Bowel cancer treatment and side effects


Anyone done the Focus4 trial?

I’ve been offered this trial (subject to scan& bloods) and wondering if anyone has experience to share?


Sorry @DMR700 not heard of it, maybe @david watt is the resident clinical trial expert could help you out on this one. Anyway hope you get accepted and it all goes well.

Hugs and positive healing :x::x::x:

Sorry not heard anything about it, google might give some information.


I've just briefly googled it @DMR700

It looks like it's involving Capecitabine and aspirin and available widely across the country? Lots available to read about it online certainly. Interesting!

Hope you're doing ok?

Lots of love,



Hi @DMR700 l don’t have direct experience but I follow the blog of a fellow patient in Wales who I think did do this trial at Velindre hospital in Cardiff. He writes under so you may be able to make contact through that link.

I'm currently on this trial, arm C. I had genetic testing on biopsy material which showed I was eligible then a scan. Been on the tablets for 3 months now and still stable. I'd like to find others on the trial but no luck so far...
