Prof Federico Bozzetti – University of Milan, Italy

Prof Federico Bozzetti talks to ecancer at the European Oncology Nursing Society annual meeting in Geneva, April 2012, on the nutrition of cancer patients.


Prof Bozzetti states that there is too much emphasis on the disease when weight loss in a patient presents during treatment. Weight loss is a prognostic, negative index on negative quality of life and can indicate complications in cases of aggressive tumours. In order to combat the side effect of weight loss, supplements could be combined with medication and treatment in order to combat the negative effects of chemotherapy and other medications.


Nutrition and supplements can also have an effect on the epidemiology of diseases, though this point is very contested.
