Regional Cancer Trials

(Question No. 413)


Mr Oakeshott asked the Minister for Health and Ageing, in writing, on 2 June 2011:

Can she confirm that funding has been reduced or discontinued for regional cancer trials at 14 sites; if so, why, and where are the sites.


Ms Roxon: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Cancer Australia's Boost Cancer Research measure will terminate, as per the original three-year funding measure on 30 June 2011.

There are 10 regional sites which are participating in 14 clinical trials as part of the measure. The sites are: Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Hobart, Albury/Wodonga, Bendigo, Ballarat, Tweed Heads, Cairns, Darwin and Launceston.
