Sugar Sweetened Beverages, Fructose and Sucrose, Genetic Susceptibility, Molecular Subtypes and Colorectal Cancer Survival� (2015)

Title:

Sugar Sweetened Beverages, Fructose and Sucrose, Genetic Susceptibility, Molecular Subtypes and Colorectal Cancer Survival�

Key words:

Research Institution:

Harvard University School of Public Health

Location:

Researcher:

Kana Wu

Project Description:

Dr. Wu�s study will examine whether higher intake of sugar-sweetened beverages, refined carbohydrates, fructose, sucrose, and glycemic load after a diagnosis of colon cancer is associated with worse prognosis; and whether these associations differ by form or source of sugar, molecular subtypes of colon cancer, or genetic susceptibility to obesity or increased insulin secretion. This project will provide a better understanding of the biological mechanisms that play a role in progression to fatal tumors and help to optimize dietary guidelines for colorectal cancer patients.
