Have you had experience in determining the appropriate chemotherapy dose for patients who are obese?

TOP - December 2012 VOL 5, NO 8 published on December 20, 2012 in Reader Survey

In the October issue, we published an article about the results of a meta-analysis reported at ASCO 2012 that supported the new guidelines that recommend weight-based chemotherapy dosing for obese cancer patients. We asked our online reading community if they had experience with dosing for obese patients.

  • 89% have dealt with weight-based dosing, with 1 reader commenting “every day”
  • 11% have not had experience with dosing for obese patients

Our sincere thanks to all who participated in this survey.
