What are the biological mechanisms behind chemotherapy-associated cognitive impairment?

Despite chemotherapy-associated cognitive impairment (CACI, aka chemobrain) affecting 75% of all cancer survivors, little is understood about the mechanisms underlying the disorder. In efforts to address this research gap, Prof Alexandre Chan from the University of California, Irvine used CANTAB to conduct an evaluation of DNA Methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and Chemotherapy-Associated Cognitive Impairment. Read on to find out the results.
