Nutritional support could minimize treatment side effects

Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy treatment  require multidisciplinary care, especially with regard to nutrition. Nutritional support could minimize treatment side effects and reduce the risk of malnutrition. This preventive measure would also have a positive impact on quality of life.  Therapeutic and nutrition guidelines based on a better understanding of the relationship between nutritional status and quality of life should be included in the treatment protocol of cancer patients.
