Calorie restriction (CR) is arguably the most potent, broadly acting dietary regimen for suppressing the carcinogenesis process, and many of the key studies in this field have been published in Carcinogenesis. Translation of the knowledge gained from CR research in animal models to cancer prevention strategies in humans is urgently needed given the worldwide obesity epidemic and the established link between obesity and increased risk of many cancers. This review synthesizes the evidence on key… Expand
Calorie restriction and cancer prevention: a mechanistic perspective
TLDR
Findings on the biological mechanisms underlying many of the anticancer effects of CR are synthesized, with emphasis on the impact of CR on growth factor signaling pathways, inflammation, cellular and systemic energy homeostasis pathways, vascular perturbations, and the tumor microenvironment. Expand
Calorie Restriction and Cancer Prevention: Established and Emerging Mechanisms
TLDR
Findings on the biological mechanisms underlying many of the anticancer effects of CR, with emphasis on the role of inflammatory processes and growth factor signaling as well as vascular perturbations, autophagy, and sirtuins represent targets for translating CR research into effective cancer prevention strategies in humans. Expand
Energy Balance, IGF-1, and Cancer: Causal Lessons from Genetically Engineered Mice
This chapter summarizes key findings, particularly from genetically engineered mouse models with alterations in serum levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 on the biological mechanismsExpand
A review of nutrition and dietary interventions in oncology
TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive review of the cancer metabolism, dietary interventions used during cancer treatment, anti metabolic drugs, and their impact on nutritional deficiencies along with a critical review ofThe following diets: caloric restriction, intermittent fasting, ketogenic diet, Mediterranean diet, Japanese diet, and vegan diet. Expand
An Evolutionary and Mechanistic Perspective on Dietary Carbohydrate Restriction in Cancer Prevention
TLDR
The confluence of basic cell biochemistry, epidemiological and anthropologic evidence points to high dietary carbohydrate and the associated disruption of the glucose-insulin axis as causes of the current increase in metabolic disorders, metabolic syndrome, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Expand
Mechanistic Targets and Phytochemical Strategies for Breaking the Obesity-Cancer Link
TLDR
The evidence is synthesized on key biological mechanisms underlying the obesity-cancer association, with particular emphasis on obesity-associated enhancements in growth factor signaling, inflammation, and perturbations in the tumor microenvironment. Expand
Calorie Restriction and Cancer: An Update
TLDR
This chapter explores some of the emerging mechanisms behind CR’s anticancer effects and discusses the relevance of CR strategies to human health. Expand
Calorie restriction and rapamycin inhibit MMTV-Wnt-1 mammary tumor growth in a mouse model of postmenopausal obesity.
TLDR
It is concluded that mTOR inhibition may be a pharmacologic strategy to mimic the anticancer effects of CR and break the obesity-breast cancer progression link. Expand
Metabolic Reprogramming by Reduced Calorie Intake or Pharmacological Caloric Restriction Mimetics for Improved Cancer Immunotherapy
TLDR
Preclinical data and clinical evidence encourage the application of caloric restriction and its mimetics as an adjuvant to immunotherapies, subject to confirmation in additional experimental settings and in clinical trials. Expand
When less may be more: calorie restriction and response to cancer therapy
TLDR
Findings from preclinical studies of CR mimetic drugs and other dietary interventions, such as the ketogenic diet, are promising for improving the efficacy of anticancer therapies and reducing the side effects of cytotoxic treatments. Expand

Identification of molecular targets for dietary energy restriction prevention of skin carcinogenesis: An idea cultivated by Edward Bresnick
TLDR
The DER inhibition of tumorigenesis and AP‐1 signaling was restored in adrenalectomized mice that were given corticosterone in the drinking water, showing that in mice in the chemical carcinogenesis protocol glucocorticoid hormone plays a major role in mediating DER prevention of cancer. Expand
Calorie restriction, aging, and cancer prevention: mechanisms of action and applicability to humans.
TLDR
This review synthesizes the key biological mechanisms underlying many of the beneficial effects of CR, with a particular focus on the insulin-like growth factor-1 pathway and some of the opportunities now available for investigations. Expand
Energy balance and carcinogenesis: underlying pathways and targets for intervention.
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to provide a strong foundation for future mechanistic-based research in this area by describing key animal and human studies of energy balance modulations involving diet, exercise, or pharmaceutical agents and by focusing on the interrelated pathways affected by alterations in energy balance. Expand
Dietary Energy Balance Modulates Signaling through the Akt/Mammalian Target of Rapamycin Pathways in Multiple Epithelial Tissues
TLDR
Novel findings suggest that dietary energy balance modulates signaling through cell-surface receptors, affecting activation of multiple downstream pathways including Akt and mTOR, thus providing important dietary and pharmacologic targets for disrupting the obesity-cancer link. Expand
Effects of dietary energy repletion and IGF‐1 infusion on the inhibition of mammary carcinogenesis by dietary energy restriction
TLDR
An 8‐d period of refeeding following chronic DER (DER‐REP) reversed the anticancer effects of DER, and 8 d of IGF‐1 infusion without refeedsing (INF) did not mimic the effects of the DER‐REP on the carcinogenic response. Expand
Mechanisms of energy restriction: effects of corticosterone on cell growth, cell cycle machinery, and apoptosis.
TLDR
Evidence is provided for a role of corticosterone on some but not all of the cellular activities associated with ER-mediated inhibition of mammary carcinogenesis via perturbations in cell cycle regulators causing a G(1) arrest in the absence of increased levels of apoptosis. Expand
The obesity-cancer link: lessons learned from a fatless mouse.
TLDR
It is postulate that the pathways associated with insulin resistance and inflammation, rather than adipocyte-derived factors, may represent key prevention and therapeutic targets for disrupting the obesity-cancer link. Expand
Therapeutic potential of resveratrol: the in vivo evidence
TLDR
A comprehensive and critical review of the in vivo data on resveratrol is provided, and its potential as a therapeutic for humans is considered. Expand
Dietary restriction reduces insulin-like growth factor I levels, which modulates apoptosis, cell proliferation, and tumor progression in p53-deficient mice.
TLDR
This is the first mechanistic study demonstrating that IGF-I supplementation abrogates the protective effect of DR on neoplastic progression, thereby favoring apoptosis over cell proliferation and ultimately slowing tumor progression. Expand
Calorie Restriction Promotes Mammalian Cell Survival by Inducing the SIRT1 Deacetylase
TLDR
It is shown that expression of mammalian Sir2 (SIRT1) is induced in CR rats as well as in human cells that are treated with serum from these animals, suggesting that CR could extend life-span by inducing SIRT1 expression and promoting the long-term survival of irreplaceable cells. Expand
