CRF affects 92% of Taiwanese cancer patients
CRF or cancer related fatigue affects 92% of Taiwanese cancer patients.
Nine medical centers on Taiwan completed a 6-year long large scale 4th stage clinical tral of 310 cancer patients with cancer related fatigue problems. An 8-week course of medications and double blind tests show 70% of them improved. Early treatment when the patience’s KPS condition is still good seems to be more effective against CRF.
