International Network on Cancer Infertility and Pregnancy: INCIP

For more than a decade, we have been leading an innovative research project on the treatment of cancer in pregnant women. Our research team studies the effects of various cancer therapies on the health of both mother and child.

The results of our work are both remarkable and reassuring: they show that pregnant women with cancer can be treated just as effectively as non-pregnant women.

We are currently monitoring more than 300 children in Belgium and The Netherlands whose mothers received chemotherapy during pregnancy. Our results show that the treatment has no adverse effect on the health and development of the child. Adverse effects are more likely to occur as a consequence of premature birth than of cancer treatment during pregnancy.
