Understanding of key interactions between cardiovascular disease, cancer and their respective treatments remains a key unmet clinical need and is essential to continued improvements in the outcomes of patients living with both conditions. Insights from observational studies such as the work ofMelloni et al and. Big Data projects such as the VICORI initiative (virtual cardio-oncology research institute a UK programme to link national cardiovascular and oncology audit data) promise to greatly enhance our understanding. Ultimately progress towards closer integration of clinical care between specialties holds potential for future hypothesis driven cardio-oncology research studies to directly informclinical practice.
