Cancer Anorexia Causes Diagnosis, Market Insights, Highlights 2030

Cancer Anorexia Overview

Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Toward the end of life, individuals with cancer experience a substantial symptom burden. The top three common symptoms in patients with cancer at the end of life are fatigue, pain, and anorexia (appetite loss). Anorexia is the lack or loss of appetite or desire to eat leading to reduced intake; associated with metabolic derangements, including the release of proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha produced by the immune system and tumor cells. It is the most common cause of decreased nutrient intake that triggers malnutrition and muscle wasting.

Cancer Anorexia Market: Causes

The causes of anorexia can be characterized by a negative protein and energy balance driven by a variable combination of reduced food intake and abnormal metabolism. It is often associated with an elevated basal metabolic rate, despite a decrease in physical activity and total energy expenditure. Muscle atrophy results from a decrease in protein synthesis and an increase in protein degradation, or a combination of both. There are numerous causes, which can be conveniently categorized as being due to central or peripheral mechanisms. Peripheral causes can be directly due to tumors causing dysphagia or directly impinging on gastrointestinal function; tumor producing substances that alter food intake, e.g., lactate, tryptophan, or parathormone-related peptide; tumors leading to alterations in nutrients resulting in the condition, e.g., zinc; or tumors producing inflammation leading to cytokine release. On the other hand, central causes of anorexia can be depression, pain, or various alterations in central neurotransmitters.


Cancer Anorexia Market: Diagnosis

Cancer anorexia remains one of the most prevalent and troublesome clinical problems experienced by patients with cancer during and after therapy. In general, the condition’s presence is clinically diagnosed when cancer patients refer to any negative change of their appetite. However, more symptoms such as reduction of appetite, early satiety, changes in taste, changes in odor, depression, dysphagia, painful swallowing, assessment of meal size, assessment of taste and odor are essential to diagnose the condition.


Cancer Anorexia Market: Treatment

Several pharmacological and nutritional approaches have been used for the treatment of cancer anorexia. Keeping in mind that both anorexia and metabolic disturbances are involved, the development of different therapeutic strategies has focused on two major factors, namely, improving appetite and neutralizing metabolic disturbances. Current pharmacological agents can be divided into three categories: orexigenic agents (appetite stimulants), anti-catabolic (anti-metabolic and anti-cytokine) agents, and anabolic agents (primarily hormonal). Progestagens (megestrol acetate and medroxyprogesterone acetate) are the first-line therapy for cancer anorexia and cachexia.

They are highly effective in relieving the symptoms of cancer anorexia. Corticosteroids, mainly dexamethasone, are also widely used to improve appetite in patients with cancer anorexia, however, they are associated with significant side effects. Cannabis such as dronabinol and nabilone have long been recognized to improve appetite, decrease nausea, and enhance food taste. Furthermore, cancer treatment not only decreases the appetite but makes the patient full more quickly when eating. Therefore, apart from these therapeutic agents, patients are recommended dietary changes to effectively cope and manage appetite loss during cancer treatment.
