Chemo Brain Caused by More Than Just Chemo

Research think physical exercise can help drastically

The knowledge that the cancer tumor itself contributes to chemo brain will help other researchers better aim their efforts at combating chemo brain.

Dr. Winocur himself has an idea of where to start helping people, however. In some previous research he conducted on chemo brain, he found that combining physical exercise with drugs used to treat memory loss caused by Alzheimer’s disease was effective in reducing the effect of chemo brain.

He and his colleagues plan on following up with that information for their next project.
