Moffitt researcher publishes book on nutritional management of cancer treatment effects
Date:4/27/2012

Nagi B. Kumar, Ph.D., R.D., F.A.D.A., a senior member and director of Cancer Chemoprevention at Moffitt Cancer Center, is the author of a landmark book Nutritional Management of Cancer Treatment Effects, published by Springer International (2012).

The book provides up-to-date information on novel nutritional approaches and strategies for individual symptoms related to cancer treatment and how nutritional approaches may be used to alleviate them.

"While the benefits of modern cancer treatments are becoming ever more evident, many cancer patients continue to be at risk for developing negative physiological and psychological treatment effects that could be benefited by targeted nutritional interventions," Kumar said. "Cancer and cancer treatment effects can be particularly problematic and last long after patients have completed treatment."

According to Kumar, targeted nutritional strategies can prevent and alleviate a number of treatment side effects, including cognitive impairment, fatigue, dysphagia, osteoporosis and other critical symptoms. The guidance provided will help to improve the survival and quality of life of cancer patients, and has the potential to dramatically affect how evidence-based clinical practice is established and improved over the coming decade.

The author is a distinguished expert in the field who has more than 25 years of experience in oncology nutrition and has been involved in establishing and implementing a Clinical Nutrition Oncology Program. The benefit of the author's experience in establishing and implementing clinical oncology nutrition programs is laid out in the book's four parts.

The four parts include:

  • Introduction - Need for strategies to improve patient outcomes and quality of life; an overview of current treatments and symptoms; systematic, proactive nutritional approaches to specific symptoms related to cancer treatments
  • Screening, assessment and re-asse
