KREMS, Austria - July 27, 2021 - PRLog -- Team of the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences in Krems identifies strong correlation between cachexia and markers of bone loss

Weight loss and muscle wasting in cancer patients have a deleterious effect on bone metabolism. This is the key finding of a new study carried out at Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences in Krems (KL Krems). The study demonstrated a significant correlation between cachexia and elevated markers of bone loss. The results pave the way for new preventive strategies for targeting osteoporosis in this fragile patient group. The findings were published in the international journal BMC Cancer.
