Cancer metabolomics

Cancer research and metabolomics and has become an important application in its own right—cancer metabolism on a system-wide scale. There have been numerous discoveries and publications focused on understanding the mechanisms of carcinogenesis and proliferation, as well as the identification of putative biomarkers in biofluid and biopsy samples. With the potential to measure the phenome on a system-wide level, metabolomics has become the tool of choice, complementing genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics in the field of oncology and advancing the understanding of cellular transformation.
Cancer cells and their metabolic regulation rely on a variety of metabolic fuels and nutrients. In cancer cells, metabolism is dramatically altered relative to that of normal cells, supporting accelerated cell proliferation, adaption to the tumor microenvironment, and survival.
