Late-term toxicities of anti-cancer treatments

Lab Manager: Dr. Shiri Ashkenzi-Karni -

Anti-cancer treatments may induce a variety of late-term toxicities that may be translated into late morbidity. Among these infertility (gonadal toxicity), vascular toxicity etc.

In our lab we emphasize on revealing the underlying mechanisms for the chemotherapy-induced vascular toxicity, radiation-induced gonadal toxicity and moreover the effect of in-utero exposure to chemotherapy on the placenta and fetal sequel. Elucidating the underlying mechanisms in essential to develop protectants to minimize the toxic effects.
