Chicago—Investigators are discovering new ways to help overcome the adverse effects associated with anticancer therapies, according to new findings presented here at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
“While much progress has been made in cancer research, both the disease and its treatment can take a toll on patients,” said Nicholas Petrelli, MD, medical director of the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center in Wilmington, Del. “So it's critical that we keep looking for new ways to ease discomfort and improve quality of life.”
