Background: Ketogenic diets have repeatedly been suggested for the treatment of cancer. Yet, only a few case studies have been published that reported long term benefits associated with such diets. Case report: Here we present a case where rectal cancer was treated with an animal fat-meat based diet, which we refer to as the paleolithic ketogenic diet. Upon diet initiation, the patient discontinued three medicines he had been taking because of hypertension and hyperuricemia. The patient… Expand
Complete Cessation of Recurrent Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) by the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet: A Case Report
TLDR
The paleolithic ketogenic diet combines benefits of both paleolithic and classical ketogenic diets, while excluding their disadvantages, and is believed to be effective and safe in this patient. Expand
Short-term effects of a Paleolithic lifestyle intervention in breast cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy: a pilot and feasibility study
TLDR
This pilot study shows that adoption of a PL intervention during curative radiotherapy of breast cancer patients is feasible and able to reduce fat mass and daily outdoor activity could eliminate vitamin D deficiency (vitamin D < 20 ng/ml). Expand
The use of ketogenic diets in cancer patients: a systematic review
TLDR
Clinical evidence for the effectiveness of ketogenic diets in cancer patients is still lacking and most studies had a low quality, high risk of bias and were highly heterogeneous. Expand
A systematic review of the use of ketogenic diets in adult patients with cancer
TLDR
High-quality evidence on the effect of ketogenic diets on anthropometry, metabolism, quality of life (QoL) and tumour effects is currently lacking in oncology patients, highlighting the need for controlled trials to fully evaluate the intervention. Expand
38-Month Long Progression-Free and Symptom-Free Survival of a Patient With Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme: A Case Report of the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet (PKD) Used As a Stand-Alone Treatment after Failed Standard Oncotherapy
Studies in animal models have suggested that the ketogenic diet may be effective in the treatment of cancer. However, human cohort studies on the ketogenic diet have, thus far, failed to showExpand

TLDR
A case report of a patient with glioblastoma multiforme who opted to use the paleolithic ketogenic diet (PKD) as a stand-alone therapy and has remained in remission for 48 months, is without sideeffects and experiences an excellent quality of life without the use of any drugs. Expand
Impact of a ketogenic diet intervention during radiotherapy on body composition: III. An interim analysis of the KETOCOMP study
TLDR
First results of the ongoing KETOCOMP study concerning body composition changes among rectal, breast and head & neck cancer patients who underwent concurrent KT during standard-of-care radiotherapy (RT) indicate some significant favorable effects of KT on body composition. Expand

Metabolic management of glioblastoma multiforme using standard therapy together with a restricted ketogenic diet: Case Report
TLDR
This is the first report of confirmed GBM treated with standard therapy together with a restricted ketogenic diet, and as rapid regression of GBM is rare in older patients following incomplete surgical resection and standard therapy alone, the response observed in this case could result in part from the action of the calorie restrictedketogenic diet.

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
Targeting metabolism with a ketogenic diet during the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme
TLDR
A KD appears safe and well tolerated during the standard treatment of GBM, and dietary restriction of carbohydrates through a KD reduces serum glucose levels significantly, even in conjunction with high dose steroids, which may affect the response to standard treatment and prognosis. Expand

TLDR
A nineyear-old child with T1DM who initially was on an insulin regime with high carbohydrate diet then was put on the Paleolithic ketogenic diet and following dietary shift glucose levels normalized and he was able to discontinue insulin, ensuring normoglycemia without the use of insulin. Expand
