Chemo Brain May Last 5 Years or Longer After Stem Cell Transplant

Hi Everyone,

There's new research out, this time from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.  Karen Syrjala, PhD, and her team of scientists have found that patients who have undergone chemotherapy prior to receiving stem cell or bone marrow transplants to treat blood cancers, may suffer from some symptoms of chemo brain that are far more severe and long lasting than has generally been reported.
