Metabolic Reprogramming by Precision Nutrition as a New Prostate Cancer Treatment

Prostate cancer progression and treatment-resistance can be driven by altered tumor cell metabolism.

Prostate Cancer Foundation researchers will conduct a clinical trial to test if a precision nutrition approach based on precision medicine profiling will alter tumor metabolism, and reduce systemic inflammation to improve immune function and microbiome profiles.

They will also investigate the biologic factors that contribute to these effects.
