Research news

Anthroposophic Medicine is an evaluated part of CRF treatment   
Cancer-realted fatigue (CRF) is one of the most frequent and prevalent symptoms expressed by cancer patients and cancer survivors. A current systematic review aimed to identify different clinical evaluation scales and interventions available for fatigue associated with cancer. Therefore, 2611 research articles were screened and revealed also non-pharmacological interventions such as exercise, complementary therapies, nutritional and psychoeducational interventions, sleep therapy, Anthroposophic Medicine, and various pharmacological agents effective in managing CRF. The results are published open access:
