Our cardiologists are conducting important research about why certain types of cancer treatments compromise heart function. There may be ways to prevent damage to the heart while still undergoing these cancer treatments. However, there is not a lot of data in this field, and so clinical research is critical.
Our Cardio-Oncology Program is building a database of patients, their cancer treatments and their heart complications, so we can help future patients and design better cancer drugs. This database also helps our current patients, because as we build a clinical practice model, we are making very informed decisions about your cardiac health as it relates to your cancer treatment.
