Abstract

In recent years new anti-emetic agents have been developed. These drugs greatly reduee or eliminate chemotherapy -related nausea and vomiting.

Introduction of new drugs as G-CSF (Neupogen), rHuGM-CSF (Leucomax) and Eprex (rHu-EPO) gave the possibility to prevent serious chemotherapy side-effects like leucopenia and anaemia.

Supportive treatment in cancer patients enormous influence the quality of life and reduce therapy- related anxiety.

In our Oncological Clinic this supportive treatment has been used for 3 years allowing more aggresive therapy.
