Study shows reduction in caloric intake in response to some cancer treatments can improve

A new French study examined, how you eat and how much you eat during cancer treatments how successful your treatment may be especially when it comes to so-called targeted cancer therapies, can determine.

The study was conducted with results, published this week in an online version of blood, the journal of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), by the French Institute of health and medical research in Nice, France. It was one of only a few, aiming that resembles caloric intake to study cell death during treatment.

"While we know that consuming excess calories is associated with increased cancer risk, there is far less clarity in the scientific literature about it, such as calorie restriction and the metabolism of the body potentially body's response to cancer treatment can affect," said lead author Jean honor country Ricci, PhD, study of the French Institute of health and medical research in Nice, France. "By understanding the link between metabolism and the body's natural cancer suppressor and activators, we might improve the effectiveness of therapy and improve survival for patients with certain types of cancer."

"If people and animals consume calories' the study explains:" the body metabolizes food to produce energy and assist in the building of proteins. " If less calories are consumed, reduces the amount of nutrients for the body's cells, slowing down the metabolic process and the function of some proteins limit."

"These characteristics of calorie restriction led researchers suspect that could reduce calorie intake may help to inhibit the overexpression of the protein of MCL-1, a change, associated with several types of cancer."

Targeted therapies are used in an area which is cancer therapy with these therapies, popular treat a wide variety of types of the disease. Researchers seeking to understand how these treatments still more effective and studies such as the completed offer more hope in France for patients with cancer, including rare species such as mesothelioma haunted.
