The impact of chemotherapy on cognitive outcomes in adults with primary brain tumors


Abrey, L E (2012). The impact of chemotherapy on cognitive outcomes in adults with primary brain tumors. Journal of Neuro-Oncology, 108(2):285-290.

Abstract

There is growing recognition that chemotherapy may have short and long term impact on cognitive function of cancer patients. However, the impact of chemotherapy on the cognition of adult patients with primary brain tumor has not been extensively studied. This article will review the evidence for both positive and negative impact of chemotherapy on cognitive function of adult brain tumor patients as well as potential confounding factors.
