Sirtex: Result 2014

Sirtex had another bumper year of profit growth, with more to come as England expands patient access.

Just like most other companies, Sirtex Medical faces a daily struggle with competition, fighting to take its business away, but Sirtex's major competitor isn’t another business – it’s death. Liver cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the world and sadly has a five-year survival rate of just 15%.

The company’s main product is an internal radiotherapy for liver cancer known as SIR-Spheres. However, it’s currently only used as a last resort due to severe side effects – which means many patients die before they have the opportunity to use it.
