Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Breast cancer drug pump. Nurse assists a woman patient suffering from breast cancer to fit a portable drug pump. This chemo- therapy pump is worn 24 hours a day, for 4 months, to administer cancer-killing drugs. It is strapped around the waist, and delivers a measured drugs dose through a tube into a vein near the shoulder. By administering drugs continuously, the device can give a dose five times stronger without side- effects. The added drugs dose has been shown to combat breast cancer more successfully, and may prevent the need for breast surgery. The pump allows the patient to play sports. Photographed at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London.
