Overview

TCTC

In Taiwan, the reimbursement for chemotherapy drugs to treat head and neck cancer, or esophageal cancer is very limited. Therefore, most of the oncologists and surgical oncologists treated patients by jointing the international clinical trials or PI initiated clinical trial. Our previous experience in clinical trials demonstrated we were well qualified and received recognition by international pharmaceutical company. To facilitate performing good quality clinical trials in Taiwan, we plan to establish Head and neck cancer and esophageal cancer consortium.
