  1. Chemotherapy in the elderly : Special issue on cancer surgery in the elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    Much of the increase in cancer incidence is explained by the increasing number of elderly in the population.

    Even at a relatively advanced age, many have a life expectancy in the range of, or longer than, the expected 5-or 10-year survival of the malignant disease diagnosed.

    There are some specific problems related to treatment with chemotherapy in this age group.

    There is a decline in organ function, especially renal and cardiac, as well as other limitations in relation to vision, hearing and mobility.

    This means that we have to adopt a different attitude both to indications for chemotherapy and to what agents to use.

    Social and socioeconomic factors also have to be taken into consideration.
