Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We kindly invite medical professionals and researchers working in the field of pediatric, adolescent, and young adult oncology and focusing on survivorship care to submit their manuscripts to “Interventions to Prevent and Reduce Late Effects in Childhood, Adolescent, and Young Adult Cancer Survivors”, a Special Issue of Current Oncology.

It is well known that the cancer itself and its treatment can cause chronic medical problems in children, adolescents, and young adults. These late effects can affect the cardiovascular system, endocrine system, osteoporosis, obesity, or psychological aspects. Interventions have the potential to prevent, reduce, or improve existing chronic medical conditions (e.g., cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, neurocognition) in the general population. Some data also exist for childhood, adolescent, and young adult cancer survivors. Many interventions are currently studied in different settings (inpatient, outpatient, combined), at different time points (during treatment, after treatment), and with different aims (mental health, concentration, physical health).

This Special Issue offers the opportunity to bring together articles that explore interventions to prevent, reduce, or reverse late effects in childhood, adolescent, and young adult cancer patients and survivors.
