Improving Quality of Life for Cancer Patients
While new cancer therapies have improved survival rates, they have also led to a constellation of dermatological side effects involving skin, hair and nails that negatively impact patient quality of life.
Skin toxicities can be associated with sensations of pain, burning, itching, skin tightness, tenderness, and increased sensitivity.
Moreover, they can be also responsible for body image disturbance and psychological distress or result in restrictions in daily activities and social interactions.
Skin toxicities are also associated with financial burden for patients and significant hidden out-of-pocket costs.
Tarian Pharma develops effective, targeted and individualized treatments that will prevent or minimize skin toxicities and therefore will reduce the suffering associated with cancer therapies.
