Is Stroke a Late Effect of Chemotherapy?

This grant, led by Dr. Ann Geiger (Wake Forest University; formerly of KPSC), explores the hypothesis that chemotherapy may increase stroke risk for years afterward. The study team will estimate the relative risks of stroke as a result of chemotherapy among ethnically diverse patients with bladder, female breast, colorectal, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, adult leukemia, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and ovarian cancers, adjusting for numerous demographic and clinical characteristics.
