BACKGROUND A frequent manifestation of advanced NSCLC is malnutrition, even though there are many studies which relate it with a poor survival, its relation with toxicity has not yet been consistently reported. The aim of this study was to associate malnutrition and albumin serum levels with the occurrence of chemotherapy-induced toxicity in cisplatin plus(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the relationship between energy and nutrient consumption with chemosensory changes in cancer patients under chemotherapy. METHODS We carried out a cross-sectional study, enrolling 60 subjects. Cases were defined as patients with cancer diagnosis after their second chemotherapy cycle (n = 30), and controls were subjects without(More)
Protein energy wasting is frequently observed in patients with advanced chronic renal failure and end-stage renal disease. Anorexia and reduced food intake are critical contributing factors and negatively impact on patients' survival. Ghrelin is a prophagic peptide produced by the stomach and acting at the hypothalamic level to increase the activity of(More)
AIM Obesity and insulin resistance are associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It was recently reported that the ratio between levels of ghrelin and obestatin is also associated with obesity and insulin resistance. We investigated the association between the ghrelin/obestatin ratio and NAFLD. METHODS This cross-sectional study included(More)

OBJECTIVE Investigate the association between polymorphisms in the leptin receptor gene associated with obesity and gallstone disease. DESIGN We conducted a cross-sectional study, carried out at a tertiary setting. SUBJECTS We enrolled 97 subjects, comprising 54 subjects with gallstones (cases) and 43 controls (without gallstones).
