Lean Body Mass and Side Effects in Patients With Lymphoma

The Relation Between Lean Body Mass and Side Effects Induced by Chemotherapy in Patients With Lymphoma: A Prospective Cohort Study


Lead Sponsor: Jens Rikardt Andersen

Source University of Copenhagen
Brief Summary

The primary purpose is to investigate the relationship between the dose of chemotherapeutic agents per kilogram of lean body mass (LBM) and the development of side effects induced by chemotherapy in patients with lymphoma. Secondarily, the maximum tolerable dose of chemotherapeutics (MTD), patients' quality of life (QOL), nutritional status and physical activity during the course of treatment are estimated.
