Cardiovascular risk in brain cancer patients

  • Jin, Kai (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


Patients with brain tumours are at higher risk for cardiovascular mortality compared to the general population and other cancer types.

Key findings

The analyses of over 170,000 brain cancer cases using data from UK and USA cancer registries showed that CVD was the leading non-cancer cause of death in brain cancer patients. The relative CVD mortality risk was substantial high in patients diagnosed at a younger age (<50 years) and greater within the first year after cancer diagnosis. These findings identified high risk groups that might be targeted for CVD prevention and intervention.
