Metabolic reprogramming induced by ketone bodies diminishes pancreatic cancer cachexia


by: Manchester Press

To fulfill the increased energy requirements, tumor cells secrete cytokines/factors inducing muscle and fat degradation in cancer patients, a condition known as cancer cachexia. It accounts for nearly 20% of all cancer-related deaths. However, the mechanistic basis of cancer cachexia and therapies targeting cancer cachexia thus far remain elusive.

Role of Oxidative Stress in Chronic Diseases


This book presents recent findings on the role of oxidative stress in chronic diseases. Understanding the mechanisms behind it enables readers to comprehend the rationale which underlies intervention in such conditions. The book places special emphasis on genetic polymorphism―an important issue related to this field of study. It covers the role of oxidative stress in transmissible disorders as well as non-transmissible chronic conditions with chapters on metabolic diseases, autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer and cachexia.
