Improving Outcomes in Cancer Treatment-Related Cardiotoxicity (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

Brief Description

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages collaborative applications that will contribute to the identification and characterization of patients at risk of developing cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity. The primary intent is to mitigate cardiovascular dysfunction while optimizing cancer outcomes. To accomplish this, methods that evaluate cardiovascular risk prior to treatment and integrate evidence-based cancer treatment regimens with cardiovascular screening, diagnostic, and/or management strategies are sought. Research applications should focus on mitigation/management of adverse effects associated with anti-cancer treatments including: cytotoxic chemotherapies, targeted agents, immunomodulatory therapies and radiation (that occur during cancer treatment and/or long-term survivorship) as defined by cardiac and/or vascular specific common terminology criteria for adverse events (CTCAE).
