a risk stratification schema (range 0 to 19) composed of age, anemia, renal failure, bad hearing, >1 fall last 6 months, needing help for taking medocs, reduced walking, decreased social life, polychemotherapy and using standard chemo dose
As Prognostic Item
Is better Than
no systematic assessment
To predict grade 3 (severe), grade 4 (life-threatening or disabling), or grade 5 (death) chemotherapy toxicity: low risk, 0 to 5 points = 30% incidence, intermediate 6 to 9 points = 52%, high risk 10 to 19 points = 83%
