Summary The project identified changes in molecular markers of antioxidant status and muscle atrophy during cancer-associated weight-loss, and confirmed omega-3 EPA as an effective treatment for muscle-loss in experimental cancer cachexia. The project also identified the PG-SGA nutrition tool as a powerful predictor of patient outcomes and survival in clinical cachexia.
