Ireland has joined a global trial to test a new treatment for early stage breast cancer.
There are 50 places available for Irish women on the trial at six hospitals across Cork, Waterford and Dublin.
Professor Bryan Hennessy is the Clinical Lead at Cancer Trials Ireland and he says patients interested in taking part should ask their Medical Oncologist about the 'Pallas Trial'.
Prof. Hennessy said: "We at Cancer Trials Ireland are running the Irish part of the trial and we are looking for approximately 50 Irish patients with breast cancer to take part, it is for early stage breast cancer.
"We are using a new exciting drug called palbociclib that we now know almost doubles the length of time that advanced breast cancer can be controlled."
