About this Research Topic
Studies are needed to integrate emerging information on patient susceptibility and treatment
with established clinical risk factors. Novel interventions aimed at reducing acute side effects, as well as the long-term burden on survivors who are at most risk from treatment related side effects, are also required. Multidisciplinary collaboration between primary care providers, oncologists, and other medical specialists is integral to the successful implementation of these interventions.
For this Research Topic, we would like to include Original Research and Review articles that focus on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of acute and long-term side effects in children treated for cancer. Topics will include both basic science and clinical research with a strong focus on, but not limited to, the following:
1. Emerging strategies in symptom management.
2. Impact of cancer treatment on children’s mental and social well-being.
3. Pediatric cardiac, cardiovascular, hearing, renal, and respiratory complications.
4. Pathophysiology of common side effects including nausea, vomiting, mucositis, endocrine system problems, and neurocognitive sequelae.
5. Childhood bone metabolism and health.
Keywords: Children, Chemotherapy, Cancer, Treatment, Sequelae
