Low-protein diet in cancer: Ready for prime time?

Roberto Pili, Luigi Fontana

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Diet has a recognized influence on cancer development and progression. However, the effect of diet modifications on the immune system remains elusive. Rubio-Patiño and colleagues provide evidence that a low-protein diet enhances the anticancer immune response in tumour-bearing mice, and highlight the potential of this diet intervention in patients with cancer.
