Default Chemo Does Not Improve Quality of Life for Metastatic Cancer Patients

Chemotherapy Use, Performance Status, and Quality of Life at the End of Life
Although palliative chemotherapy is used to improve QOL for patients with end-stage cancer, its use did not improve QOD for patients with moderate or poor performance status and worsened QOD for patients with good performance status. The QOD in patients with end-stage cancer is not improved, and can be harmed, by chemotherapy use near death, even in patients with good performance status.
Article based on above research.
