Looking for people who've had chemo AND previous treatment with anti-EGFR monoclonal antibodies (mAb) therapy

Hello everyone,

A rather specific request on behalf of NICE (National Instiute of Health and Care Excellence).

NICE are seeking participation in an important piece of work relating to metastatic colorectal cancer. They are looking for two people who are willing to share their experience, to talk about their treatment history and the impact on quality of life.

If you have received chemotherapy (including oxaliplatin, irinotecan and 5-fluorouracil, anti-VEGF agents) and previous treatment with anti-EGFR monoclonal antibodies (mAb) therapy for ≥ 4 months, the latter to which you are now resistant to you may be suitable.

You will be required to do some reading and join two meetings (via Zoom). To compensate for your time, NICE will provide an honorarium fee of £150.

If you are interested in receiving further details, please contact Mandy Tonkinson, Public Involvement Adviser at NICE via mandy.tonkinson@nice.org.uk.

Mandy will contact you to discuss further details and timescales for the project.
