About

The aim of the study was to assess the effect of nutritional supplementation on nutritional status and postoperational complications in cancer patients with no clinical signs of malnutrition

Full description

In previous psychological studies our team found high level psychological stress in over 60% of cancer patients. This may cause numerous problems including anorexia, which together with biological disturbances can initiate cancer related catabolism even when it can not yet be seen. In this study we want to answer the question if oral nutritional supplementation can help the patient overcome the catabolism in its initial phase and improve nutritional status, which would result in reduced number of postoperational complications
