It may, however, be the result of increased gluconeogenic flux which occurs in these patients. This may be due to increased substrate availability resulting from lactate production as the unoxidized-end-product of tumour glycolysis (Warburg effect). In addition, increased levels of glucogenic amino acid may be associated with preferential amino acid… CONTINUE READING
