The Effect of a New Specific Enteral Formula Compared to a Standard Formula on the Tolerability of a Combined Radio- and Chemotherapy in Cancer Patients

2014-08-27 03:17:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to determine the impact of a specific nutrition formula with a high content of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and fat in oncology patients receiving radio-/chemotherapy on body weight, body composition, nutritional status and physical function compared to a standard nutrition formula. Using an adaptive design approximately 80 patients will be randomized in the first part of the study. Following an interim analysis further 160 patients may be added, for a total of 240 patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.

Substances which are of little or no nutritive value, but are used in the processing or storage of foods or animal feed, especially in the developed countries; includes ANTIOXIDANTS; FOOD PRESERVATIVES; FOOD COLORING AGENTS; FLAVORING AGENTS; ANTI-INFECTIVE AGENTS (both plain and LOCAL); VEHICLES; EXCIPIENTS and other similarly used substances. Many of the same substances are PHARMACEUTIC AIDS when added to pharmaceuticals rather than to foods.

A quantitative value of a measured amount of a specific food that is equal to the GLYCEMIC INDEX of that food multiplied by the carbohydrate content of that food.

Food and dietary formulations including elemental (chemically defined formula) diets, synthetic and semisynthetic diets, space diets, weight-reduction formulas, tube-feeding diets, complete liquid diets, and supplemental liquid and solid diets.
