Details and patient eligibility

About

The study purpose is to measure REE by indirect calorimetry and to determine limits of agreement with confidence intervals between measured REE and predictive equations for determination of energy requirements in patients with incurable cancer. Clinical factors associated with hyper- and hypometabolism will be elucidated. Data will be obtained from patient journals in combination with measurements of REE and registration of survival. Data will be collected at one timepoint and survival will be monitored prospectively.
