Weight loss and the development of cancer cachexia are well known to contribute to the morbidity and mortality of cancer patients. Loss of body mass is most commonly due to an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. The aim of this study was to examine the nature of the negative energy balance in cancer patients and evaluate several new approaches to redress the host-tumour imbalance in cancer cachexia.
