Abstract

Background: High protein diet (HDP) promotes improvement of lean body mass in elderly without cancer; but the impact of high protein intake on muscle strength and mortality in cancer patients remains to be elucidated. This study evaluates the association between HPD on handgrip strength (HGS) and survival in older adults outpatients with advanced gastrointestinal cancer.
