Evaluating the Combined Intervention of Nutritional Supplementation (Remune) and Exercise
in Patients With Cancer Cachexia
The main purpose of this research study is to determine if the use of a nutritional
supplement and exercise improve or worsen cachexia (weight and muscle loss).
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester Medical Center
In this study the investigator would like to better understand how cachexia (weight
and muscle loss) may improve or worsen, and how exercise and nutritional supplements
may impact this process. The investigator would like to see whether a nutritional
supplement (Remune) with or without a walking and progressive resistance exercise
program (EXCAP©®, Exercise for Cancer Patients) can improve symptoms in patients with
lung or gastrointestinal cancers with weight loss and cachexia. The investigator would
also like to find out if this nutritional supplement and exercise intervention improves
physical performance, day-to-day function, quality of life, and how the supplement
and/or exercise may affect different markers in the blood over time.
