Further evidence -16 publications – supporting use of TARGIT IORT using Intrabeam in routine clinica

In the last 18 months further evidence has emerged supporting the use of TARGIT IORT for breast cancer.

The Full Report of the TARGIT-A trial was published in the HTA Journals in September 2016. This contains several additional analyses including a) subgroup analysis as per tumour and patient characteristics b) formal health economic analysis c) analysis of the earliest cohort of patients with a median follow up of 5 years had the same results as the main trial, viz. – that TARGIT and EBRT had similar breast cancer control and non-breast-cancer deaths were fewer with TARGIT.
