An Observation of the Change in Percent Lean Body Mass of Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Undergoing Radiation Treatment
- To determine energy and protein consumption on an average radiotherapy treatment day
using the multiple pass method 24-hour analysis of food recall at baseline and
- To compare energy and protein by mouth intake from baseline to treatment end.
- To measure and compare diet quality from baseline to radiotherapy treatment end by
Healthy Eating Index (HEI) score.
- To determine lean body mass versus fat mass using a bioelectrical impedance analysis
- To compare body fat to lean body mass percentage at baseline with that at radiotherapy
- To correlate energy and protein consumption with lean body mass at baseline and
- To determine the change in appetite throughout radiotherapy by comparing data obtained
by interview at baseline and radiotherapy treatment end.
- To determine the change in performance level (Karnofsky percentage) associated with the
radiotherapy through a series of questions asked at baseline and treatment end.
OUTLINE: Patients receive radiotherapy as planned for 7 weeks. Patients undergo an interview
on treatment day 1 (before initiation of radiotherapy) and treatment day 35 (after
completion of radiotherapy) regarding recent food consumption history and appetite.
Patients' standing weight and height are measured on these days and their body composition,
measured with a bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) device, are also taken. Patients'
Karnofsky performance score are obtained from their medical record.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Energy and protein consumption measured on an average radiotherapy treatment day by multiple pass method 24-hour analysis for food recall at baseline and treatment end
