Is there a role for carbohydrate restriction in the treatment and prevention of cancer?
TLDR
The possible beneficial effects of low CHO diets on cancer prevention and treatment are addressed, with emphasis on the role of insulin and IGF1 signaling in tumorigenesis as well as altered dietary needs of cancer patients. Expand
Impact of a ketogenic diet intervention during radiotherapy on body composition: I. Initial clinical experience with six prospectively studied patients
TLDR
The data lend support to the hypothesis that KDs administered as supportive measures during standard therapy are safe and might be helpful in preservation of muscle mass and weight loss occurred in all patients, although this was only significant in two patients. Expand
Stereotactic body radiotherapy for oligo-metastatic liver disease - Influence of pre-treatment chemotherapy and histology on local tumor control.
TLDR
Besides dose, histology and pretreatment chemotherapy were important factors influencing local TCP in this large cohort of liver metastases, adding to the emerging evidence that breast cancer metastases do respond better to hypofractionated SBRT compared to other histologies. Expand
Local tumor control probability modeling of primary and secondary lung tumors in stereotactic body radiotherapy.
TLDR
Dose-response relationships for local tumor control in SBRT were not different between lung metastases of various primary cancer sites and between primary NSCLC and lung metastased patients. Expand
Lack of a dose-effect relationship for pulmonary function changes after stereotactic body radiation therapy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer.
TLDR
This study failed to demonstrate a significant dose-effect relationship for changes of pulmonary function after SBRT for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer. Expand
Impact of Different Types of Diet on Gut Microbiota Profiles and Cancer Prevention and Treatment
TLDR
The effects of some of the most popular “cancer-specific” diets on microbiota composition and their potential impact on cancer prevention and treatment are reviewed. Expand
A pilot case study on the impact of a self-prescribed ketogenic diet on biochemical parameters and running performance in healthy and physically active individuals
TLDR
There seems to be an impact on the blood lipid profile that could be considered problematic with respect to cardiovascular disease risk, however, the predictive role of cholesterol levels alone in individuals undergoing regular physical activity remains to be elucidated. Expand
Applicability of the linear-quadratic formalism for modeling local tumor control probability in high dose per fraction stereotactic body radiotherapy for early stage non-small cell lung cancer.
TLDR
The data suggest accurate modeling of local tumor control in fractionated SBRT for stage I NSCLC with the traditional LQ formalism. Expand
The SBRT database initiative of the German Society for Radiation Oncology (DEGRO): patterns of care and outcome analysis of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for liver oligometastases in 474
TLDR
After an initial learning curve with regards to total cumulative doses, consistently high biologically effective doses have been employed translating into high local tumor control at 1 and 2 years and overall survival is mainly influenced by histology and metastatic tumor burden. Expand
Calories, carbohydrates, and cancer therapy with radiation: exploiting the five R’s through dietary manipulation
TLDR
It is concluded that CR and KDs may act synergistically with radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer patients and some guidelines for implementing these dietary interventions into clinical practice are provided. Expand
