Journal of Clinical Oncology, 05/08/2012
Kuhlthau KA et al. – This is the first study to the knowledge of health–related quality of life (HRQoL) in a cohort of children with brain tumors treated with proton radiation. This prospective study demonstrates the effect of disease type and intensity of treatment on HRQoL. It further suggests that where child self–report (CSR) is not possible, parent proxy report (PPR) is appropriate in most circumstances.
