NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that OncoTherapy Network, a leading online community which helps oncologists and other clinicians gain a better understanding of the newest information available regarding the use of targeted therapies and immunotherapies, discusses quality of life (QOL) issues that health care professionals may encounter when it comes to administering these kinds of therapies. 

OncoTherapy Network is pleased to feature the articles below on the topic of QOL, which may help clinicians address the tough patient issues associated with the use targeted therapies:

  • Call for QOL Experiences With Targeted Therapies: Very little is currently available pertaining to psychological and quality of life data literature on patients receiving targeted therapies.
  • The Most Common Question: Taking the time to answer the most common questions will also help us answer the most difficult questions ahead.
  • A Balance Between Quality Versus Quantity: What we have learned with immunotherapy drugs is that the associated side effects may not be readily apparent upon initiation of treatment. Oftentimes, this is a slow process until a response is seen. In the interim, there may be transient worsening of disease before the disease stabilizes and/or the tumors regress.
