Welcome to the FOxTROT Research website

The aim of all the projects in our international FOxTROT research programme is to improve bowel cancer treatment, making it more effective and kinder for patients with Stage 2 or Stage 3 cancer. Up until now, despite recent advances in the treatment of other types of cancers, the standard treatment for bowel cancer has not significantly improved.

However, our first FOxTROT research showed that an alternative approach, while using the same standard, anti-cancer (chemotherapy) medicines used by the NHS, could be more effective and provide a number of benefits to patients. More information is given within this website.

This website is intended to help:

a) Newly diagnosed patients, their families and those who care about them who want to know more about the FOxTROT research programme.
b) Healthcare professionals and researchers .
