CASC-IN: A New Tool to Diagnose Pre-Cachexia in Cancer Patients
TLDR
It is concluded that CASC-IN can be satisfactorily used for both assessing cachectic and precachectic cancer patients and constitutes the only available tool for the classification of pre-cachectic patients.
Defining a new model of interdisciplinary cancer cachexia care in regional Victoria, Australia
TLDR
The majority of patients attending clinic multiple times maintained or increased weight and functional status during their involvement with the service, but successes of care provision were muted by high attrition, primarily due to delayed referral and expected high mortality within the study cohort.
Muscle wasting disease: a proposal for a new disease classification
TLDR
This paper outlines a first proposal for the disease nomenclature and classification of “Muscle Wasting Diseases” and advocates the use of the term “muscle wasting” as the unifying entity that represents the single most common disease process across a large spectrum of cachexia and in sarcopenia-associated disorders.
Nutrition and Cachexia in Gastrointestinal Cancer Patients
TLDR
This chapter focuses specifically on the nutrition of gastrointestinal cancer patients, with a focus on cancer cachexia and nutritional screening and support.
Evaluating mild cachexia syndrome in the HIV-positive pregnant woman
TLDR
This data indicates that suppression of immune activation and inflammation during HIV infection and lead to elevated circulating concentrations of cachectic cytokines may be a cause for concern.
Loss of muscle mass: current developments in cachexia and sarcopenia focused on biomarkers and treatment
TLDR
The progress to combat muscle wasting is in full swing, and perhaps diagnosis of muscle atrophy and of course patient treatments could be soon support by improved and more helpful strategies.
