Abstract
It has been known for nearly a century that dietary changes can affect the rate of cancer induction and progression. Newer research has revealed that many cancers typically demonstrate a high metabolic and glycolytic rate, which results in resistance to cancer treatment via several molecular and physiologic mechanisMS. Recent data has also revealed the significant role of nutrition in cancer care and its effect on traditional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. In our mouse model, calorie and carbohydrate restriction has been shown to increase the efficacy of radiation therapy in preventing the growth of breast cancer cells. Clinical data has recently revealed that dietary changes can significantly decrease serum glucose levels in patients with brain tumors, a factor which has been shown to correlate with better overall response to treatment. This demonstration will present data illustrating the effect of diet on several of the metabolic pathways that are altered via dietary changes, including both calorie and carbohydrate restriction, and the methods with which these alterations appear to modulate the effectiveness of cancer treatment in both the laboratory and clinical setting.
