“Bladder preservation with radiotherapy is an alternative to surgery for the management of locally advanced bladder cancer. The results of this study show that hypofractionated radiotherapy over 20 fractions is as good as conventional radiotherapy over 32 fractions.
This is good news for patients with a significantly shorter treatment time (4 weeks cf 6.5 weeks) and a high rate of disease-free survival at 5 years.
Interestingly there was a significant contribution to the BCON trial named here, by patients from the South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire region.”
