The American Society of Clinical Oncology supports research showing that it’s safe and effective for people with cancer—especially those who are obese—to receive higher chemotherapy doses based not on estimates but on their actual weight. Direct your patients to ASCO’s guidelines on weight-based dosing. Find information for patients on more than 20 ASCO guidelines at www.cancer.net/whattoknow. ■
