The International Cardioncology Society was founded after scientists showed that cardiac side effects in cancer patients could be prevented. Years of research have demonstrated that cooperation between cardiologists and oncologists can change the natural history of a cancer patient.
ICOSNA has developed best practice strategies to prevent and treat cardiac toxicity in patients undergoing chemotherapy. ‘It’s not just a matter of building up a society but saying to everybody that the need for working together is of paramount importance’, says Dr Carlo Cipolla, director of the Cardiology Division at the IEO and president of ICOS – Europe/Asia.
