Nutritional status in mesothelioma
Malnutrition and sarcopenia have been shown to significantly affect survival, quality of life and physical functioning in other cancers but their role in mesothelioma has not been examined.
A decline in nutritional status and lean body mass over time has been widely reported in other cancers, however, there is little information on these parameters in mesothelioma.
Researchers at the Institute for Respiratory Health aim to identify the incidence, progression, consequences and mediators of malnutrition and sarcopenia in the disease course.
