ss of muscle mass. That differs from childhood cancer survivors, who commonly have less lean muscle mass than Americans of the same age, sex and race. Lean muscle is the skeletal muscle that is the basis of strength and function. Patients experience cancer-related muscle wasting during treatment when nutrition and exercise are also a struggle. The late effects of treatment, including hormonal abnormalities and physical disability, may make it difficult for some survivors to fully recover.

The paper’s senior author is Melissa Hudson, M.D., a member of the St. Jude Department of Oncology. The other authors are Kevin Krull, Kendra Jones, Daniel Mulrooney, Gregory Armstrong, Daniel Green, Wassim Chemaitilly, Carmen Wilson, Kyla Shelton, Deo Kumar Srivastava and Leslie Robison, all of St. Jude, Webb Smith and Sabeen Ali, both formerly of St. Jude; and Charles Sklar, of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York.

The research was funded in part by a grant (CA21765) from the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health and ALSAC.
