New JACC: CardioOncology Papers Discuss Role of Healthy Lifestyle on Transition From Cancer to CVD And T2D; Common Pathophysiology in Cancer and CVD; Cardio-Oncology in Iran; More

In the latest issue of JACC: CardioOncology, new research highlights the role of a healthy lifestyle in slowing the transition from cancer development to the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes – and even reducing the risk.

Additional research papers explore early predictors of impaired cardiorespiratory fitness in breast cancer survivors, markers of subclinical cardiovascular disease in lymphoma survivors using cardiovascular magnetic resonance, and more.

A new state-of-the-art review identifies common pathophysiological linkages between cancer and cardiovascular disease. Improvements in cancer-specific survival and outcomes have led to a higher coincidence of cardiovascular disease among patients with cancer, for which they are often undertreated.

This issue also includes an international perspective on the emergence of cardio-oncology in Iran, where lifestyle and environmental changes, as well as improvements in life expectancy and an aging population, are expected to have an impact on cancer prevalence in the country.
