Prof Matt Seymour - National Institute for Health Research, UK

Prof Seymour talks to ecancertv at the World Cancer Leaders Summit in Istanbul, Turkey, about his involvement in the International Rare Cancers Initiative.

He discusses the issues surrounding rare cancers and the difficulties in the implementation of clinical research projects due to the low numbers of patients.

With individual countries lacking the required cases and funds to run practice changing randomised trials Prof Seymour stresses the need for international collaboration.
