What is it about?
Thanks to intensive research in oncology, more and more patients survive cancer and live longer. However, pre-existing cardiac condition or cardiotoxicity developed during the treatment can affect the cancer treatment outcome: prognosis, survival and quality of life.
That is why the Fund for research in cardio-oncology is launching a call for translational or clinical research in cardio-oncology. The research may concern the care and cure for cancer patients developing a cardiotoxicity as well as the care and cure for cancer patients with a pre-existing cardiac condition.
This is a joint call by the Funds Pierre Masure, Alphonse & Marie Walckiers, Marie-José Crusnaire, Ruts Ruys, Fernand Léonard and Julien Rongvaux.
