Professor Gordon Rustin has been working on a trial investigating when best to treat ovarian cancer that has relapsed, since 1994. After analysing data from 1442 patients the trial run by the Medical Research Council and EORTC was selected as the number one abstract at the 2009 annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, which is the largest cancer meeting in the world. In May 2009 Professor Rustin presented the trial results to over 15,000 people in Orlando, USA. This caused a huge debate around the world, because the results were unexpected and counterintuitive. However the message is steadily getting across that this trial provides patients with important information which will improve their quality of life.

Professor Rustin is a wonderful person, he saved my nephew when he was a teenager, he is now taller than the professor! Seen his previous videos, this one is the icing on the cake. Well done and keep up the good work and reputation of Mount Vernon Hospital.
