Increased Efficacy of Supplemental Nutrition in Cancer with Clenbuterol Treatment (1990)

Title:

Increased Efficacy of Supplemental Nutrition in Cancer with Clenbuterol Treatment

Key words:

clenbuterol, acivicin, insulin

Research Institution:

University of Cincinnati

Location:

Ohio

Researcher:

Teri Foley-Nelson

Project Description:

Dr. Foley-Nelson sought to determine combinations that will stop tumors from growing and at the same time will prevent the loss of body weight and the wasting away of muscle tissue. The treatments she studied included clenbuterol, which prevents loss of muscle weight, acivicin, which stops tumor growth but also causes muscle weight loss, and insulin, which increases the metabolism of glucose to possibly counter the muscle weight loss.
