Dear Readers,

Cardio-Oncology becomes more and more interesting for many scientists in the world. It was confirmed during the latest Global Cardio-Oncology Summit in Tampa, Florida. We can see it also in the autumn issue of "OnCOReview", where authors from Russia and Ukraine share their work with us. 

The authors from Kiev present the experience gained during the creation of a pioneer Cardio-Oncology Unit in Ukraine, their first achievements in the treatment of patients with cancer and cardiavascular risk are described. Authors from Moscow have prepared a paper widely discussing the role of new oral anticoagulants in the treatment of venous thromboembolic disease related to cancer. The Polish Cardio-Oncology is represented by the interesting case report of an elderly patient diagnosed with lung cancer and experienced a heart attack.

In articles outside the cardiooncological circle, the authors discuss important issues of prevention and public health. Researchers from the Silesian Medical University analyze clinical features of the patients with colorectal cancer, that may determine the goals of screening. The authors from University of Warmia and Mazury present their conclusions about the importance of time between date of prostate cancer diagnosis and start of treatment. Unfortunately, despite the law changes in Poland, it is still too long
