    Biol Res Nurs 5:3-17. 2003
    ..These factors and foods are sometimes called nutraceuticals, and research is needed to evaluate their efficacy in combating cancer cachexia...

    Andrew Hitt
    National Institute of Nursing Research, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA
    Res Nurs Health 28:56-66. 2005
    ..These data also demonstrate that E3 ligases, which are involved in disuse atrophy, also are associated with tumor-induced skeletal muscle wasting...

    Erin Graves
    Laboratory of Symptom Management, National Institute of Nursing Research, Bethesda, MD, USA
    Res Nurs Health 29:87-97. 2006
    ..Further study is needed to understand the relationship between COX and SMW, and whether patients with cancer cachexia might benefit from COX inhibitors...

    Erin Graves
    National Institute of Nursing Research, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA
    Res Nurs Health 28:48-55. 2005
    ..CLA preserved gastrocnemius muscle mass and reduced TNF receptors in muscle of tumor-bearing mice. These data suggest that CLA may preserve muscle mass by reducing the catabolic effects of TNF on skeletal muscle...

    Donna O McCarthy
    Laboratory of Symptom Management, National Institute of Nursing Research, NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA
    Res Nurs Health 29:98-104. 2006
    ..5% CLA reduced SMW, but had no effect on muscle levels of TNFR1. We conclude that that tumor-induced SMW can occur independent of muscle levels of TNFR1. Further study is needed before CLA can be tested in persons with cancer cachexia...

    ..MHC isoform content was not significantly different from control in plantaris and gastrocnemius muscles. These data are the first to show a change in myosin isoform expression accompanying muscle atrophy during cancer cachexia...
