Supportive Care Video Series 2019 - Aromatase Inhibitor Induced Arthralgia (AI Induced Arthralgia)
Fri, 10/25/2019 - 16:58
Arjun Gupta, MD, Advisory Board Member, GRACE Faculty

GRACE is very excited to bring you more of our program on supportive care in cancer treatment.

Arjun Gupta, MD, one of the GRACE Fellows Ambassador Program Winners for 2019 is the host of this video series, Supportive Care in Cancer Treatment. In this video, Dr. Gupta's guest is Dr. Dawn Hershman, with Columbia University in New York. Their topic of discussion is Aromatase Inhibitor Induced Arthralgia (AI Induced Arthralgia).

Aromatase inhibitors (ais) are commonly used as adjuvant treatment in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive early breast cancer.  Arthralgia is often defined as an aching or pain in the joints without swelling, and can include stiffness, joint pain, redness and the reduced ability to move your joints.  This is not to be confused with arthritis -- which is more likely pain with swelling of the joints.
