Hmmm, that link doesn't seem to take you to the search I did. So follow the link above, type triptolide in the search trials box and it should throw up 5 trials of which 3 are recruiting and 2 closed but none of them for CC.

Hi Julie,

I haven't heard of anything for this and CC as of yet but if I hear or see of anything coming up I will of course post the details here on the site. I did a quick search and came up with this, but none of it seems CC related.

The picture in the link above is of the Maggie's Center here in Dundee, in the grounds of Ninewells Hospital. It certainly is a striking building and the work they do there for patients, families and carers etc, well I have nothing but good things to say about that!
