Chemo Brain Study in Denver

No news to those who've been through cancer treatments that chemotherapy is a mixed bag. Unexpected perhaps, and devastating, are the residual effects on brain function, leaving susceptible patients muddle-headed and forgetful.

An interesting new study confirms that chemo can cause long-lasting changes in brain metabolism and blood flow. More on that in the upcoming edition of femailhealthnews.

Meanwhile, University of Colorado Health Science Center investigators are seeking women 45 years of age and older, newly diagnosed with breast cancer, to participate in a study of chemo brain. Subjects will be enrolled prior to the start of their chemo treatments.

If you'd like more information on the study, contact, or call 303-724-2536.
