Lack of a chemobrain effect for adjuvant FOLFOX chemotherapy in colon cancer patients. A pilot study
Supportive Care in Cancer, 08/16/2012
Andreis F et al. – The authors found no effect on cognitive function related to chemotherapy, the only little modification is about some emotional performance during chemotherapy. These findings may be explained by the central role of the psychological adaptation process, which occurs during the period from diagnosis to completion of treatment and is characterized by anxiety and adjustment depression. The results seem to rule out any significant cognitive impairment due to adjuvant FOLFOX4 chemotherapy in colon cancer patients.
