Is there a relationship between nutritional intake (protein, kcals) to improve tolerance and support recovery from biochemotherapy for melanoma patients, and the reduction of complications associated with treatment?
One (1) small comparative, descriptive study (neutral quality) of 25 patients (19 on treatment and 6 off treatment) studied the relationship of fatigue to kcal and protein intake in patients receiving biochemotherapy for melanoma. No association between dietary intake and fatigue was observed.
