Side Effects Management Vital to the Quality of Life

In a recent article in Cure Today, LRG Marketing Director, Erin Kristoff, details the importance of side effects management and the role the LRG plays in helping to extend survival and to improve the quality of life for GIST patients.

“The LRG has been collecting data in our Patient Registry for the last 15 years. One of the most dominant trends that has surfaced is that more than 49 precent of our members report experiencing side effects as a result of their drug therapies. Out of a sample group of 1,462 patients, patients reported 827 cases when side effects became so burdensome that they interrupted their drug therapy usage. In light of the fact that they have the ability to influence a patient to either temporarily or permanently discontinue their potentially lifesaving drug, the importance of effectively managing side effects cannot be overstated.”
