Anemia in cancer patients: Evaluating the risk of treatment-induced anemia and classification of therapies
The incidence of anemia in cancer patients is high, and varies depending on the type of treatment the patient received. Chemotherapy-induced anemia is well-known, but chemotherapies has never been classified according to the risk of anemia, as it has been performed for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). In addition, Phase 3 studies have also reported anemia with the use of targeted therapies.
The aim of the C-KIN Working Group is to review the available data and build a classification of the risk of treatment-induced anemia, including chemotherapy and targeted therapies.
