Background: Cancer cachexia–associated weight loss is poorly understood; energetically demanding tissues (eg, organ and tumor mass) and resting energy expenditure (REE) are reported to increase with advanced cancer. Objective: The objective was to quantify the potential contribution of increasing masses of energetically demanding tissues to REE with… CONTINUE READING
