Stanford Imaging Study & Brain Abnormalities in Chemo Patients

In another study using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), Stanford researchers linked verbal memory impairments with the CMF (cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, and 5-fluorouracil) regimen of chemotherapy. The number of participants was quite small though, involving just 14 women with metastatic or locally advanced breast cancer who had gone through chemotherapy, and 14 healthy women who served as controls.

Shelli Kesler, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, led the study which was published in the Nov. 1, 2009 issue of Clinical Cancer Research.
