HC Deb 11 June 1968 vol 766 c4W
35. Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement about the work of the recently formed special unit at Fulham Hospital in London.

Mr. K. Robinson

A sterile unit for the treatment by chemotherapy of chorion-epithelioma (a rare form of cancer which affects women following pregnancy) was opened in 1964, consisting of eight beds. The mortality from this condition was about 90 per cent. but under the new form of treatment has been reduced to below 20 per cent.
