New Study Aims to Help Gait, Balance for Patients Treated with Chemotherapy

Cancer survivors are at increased risk for post-treatment falls, but James breast cancer specialist Dr. Maryam Lustberg is co-authoring a study that sheds light on how the experts can change that. Chemotherapy can cause changes in peripheral nerves that can cause a painful condition called neuropathy. But this study looks at ways to understand the changes occurring as patients receive their treatment – and how those changes in balance can be predicted and addressed.
