“It is important not only to choose the correct treatment plan for the underlying disease, but also to prevent, monitor and correct adverse events such as anemia, hepato-, cardio-, and dermatological toxicity, anorexia-cachexia syndrome, bone metastasis, nausea and vomiting, febrile neutropenia and many others”.
Anton Snegovoy, Chairperson, RASSC

“In the past, the focus was on cancer treatment, but not on issues related to the quality of life of patients. Things are different today. I am very pleased that Russian colleagues are cooperating with our MASCC association. I am glad that they are doing serious work to spread information in Russia about the importance of supportive care in cancer”
