Dr Grant Williams - University of Alabama, Alabama, USA

Dr Grant Williams speaks to ecancer at the International Society of Geriatric Oncology 2018 conference in Amsterdam about accelerated sarcopenia in older cancer patients.

He explains losses of muscles mass and strength are usually associated with the ageing process, but cancer patients are at an even higher risk of sarcopenia due to both illness and treatment.

Dr Williams discusses some of the methodology and results from the Health, Ageing and Body Composition (Health ABC) study which followed over 3000 participants from the United States for 6 years.

This service has been kindly supported by an unrestricted grant from Janssen Oncology.
