Datamonitor Healthcare CV&Met: Chemotherapy-Induced Anemia Disease Coverage

May 02, 2018

Anemia is a common complication in cancer patients, and can arise due to the malignancy itself (cancer-related anemia) or chemotherapy treatment (chemotherapy-induced anemia [CIA]). CIA occurs because of the myelotoxicity of chemotherapy drugs, which impairs erythropoiesis and results in a decreased number of circulating red blood cells and a diminished ability to transport oxygen around the body.
Additionally, there is evidence that anemia lowers patient response to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, as tumor hypoxia can cause resistance to cancer treatment.
