Effetti della esposizione prenatale alla chemioterapia

"We believe that our findings have the potential to change clinical practice in three situations. Firstly, the fear for the negative effects of chemotherapy should not be a reason to terminate pregnancy. Secondly, the fear for chemotherapy should not be a reason to delay maternal treatment. Thirdly, the fear for chemotherapy should not be a reason to decide to deliver the fetus prematurely in order to start chemo after delivery. Regarding the latter, we believe that children suffer more form the long term consequences of prematurity when compared to chemotherapy."
