Learn about diarrhea related to cancer therapy
A significant proportion of patients receiving cancer therapy experience diarrhea, and diarrhea has the potential to lead to dehydration, potential infections, and treatment nonadherence in this population. New “targeted cancer therapy” agents, such as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) antibodies and tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), with or without cycle chemotherapy agents, may cause an increase in the content of electrolytes and fluids in the intestinal lumen, resulting in the passage of loose/watery stools (i.e. diarrhea). Diarrhea has been reported as one of the most common side effects of TKIs and may result in interruptions of anticancer therapy or reductions in therapeutic dose, potentially impacting patient outcome. Diarrhea is also a common side effect of some approved CDK 4/6 inhibitors.
