Quality of life

Treatments of malignant diseases are usually intensive and stressful for the patient.

An important question in the treatment of malignant diseases is how and whether the quality of life is restricted by the treatment and how long these restrictions last.

We are working on the following questions:

    How does the quality of life change with age?
    How do sports, religiousness, nutrition and complementary therapies influence the quality of life?
    How is the quality of life of the relatives affected by the disease and the treatment?
    Is there a correlation between individual radiation sensitivity and quality of life
