Diet And Nutrition In Cancer (The DANICA study)
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: Wilmot Cancer Institute
This study will assess the feasibility of delivering an 8-week Mediterranean Diet
intervention as well as the intervention's preliminary efficacy on cancer-related
fatigue among patients undergoing chemotherapy, compared to usual care. In the first
4 weeks of the intervention, we will provide the participants with food and educate
them on the principles and components of the Mediterranean Diet, while in the second
4 weeks participants will prepare their own food. In addition, we will evaluate changes
in metabolism and mitochondrial function during 4 weeks of chemotherapy and determine
how adherence to a Mediterranean diet modulates these changes during these 4 weeks.
The hypothesis is that the intervention will promote adherence to the Mediterranean
Diet. The second hypothesis is that adherence will be associated with alleviation
of fatigue and improvements in metabolic and mitochondrial function.
