Medical papers and their abstracts are central to the advancement of medical research internationally.  Teams of researchers design their studies, collect the data, and then write and publish papers about their findings in peer reviewed medical and scientific journals.  The abstract is a synopsis of the study where the reader can determine if he or she is further interested in the subject and wants to read the full paper.  The clearinghouse for this information is the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM).  NLM maintains numerous databases where this information is cataloged and searchable.  

If you find a medical abstract you would like to read and in some cases buy the full study, I recommend that you go to National Library of Medicine's PubMeds online database and enter in the name of the study as provided in these abstracts.  Note you will see the abstract appear, and with it will be a symbol as to who published the study.  Press the publisher's' link and you will see if you can buy the study by having it downloaded to your computer.  In some cases there are no charges, the full text of the article is free and available online.  Also note that to the right of the title of the abstracts in PubMeds you will find a link that states "Related Articles."  If you wish to read more about the subject from the perspective of other authors and similar lines of research, the database will give you a wealth of additional abstracts for you to read.    

If you want to become proficient at researching this database I urge you to complete the tutorial.  

If you experience symptoms of chemobrain, I strongly encourage you to talk with your health care professional about your specific medical condition and treatments. The information contained in this website is meant to be helpful and educational, but is not a substitute for medical advice.

If you feel your medical team is not informed or supportive about chemobrain I urge you to refer them to this web site or seek out a provider among those listed who are actively engaged in the research and writing on this complex matter.  

No one should go through this alone.
