Video Description

New Delhi, Sep 28 (ANI): A recent study suggests that milk protein can alleviate chemotherapy side effects. The study suggests that chemotherapy and other cancer therapies can wreak havoc on the taste buds and olfactory senses, depriving recipients of the intricate interplay between taste and smell that is critical to grasping flavours and enjoying foods. Over time, taste and smell abnormalities (TSA) can lead to a loss of appetite and anorexic behaviours, compromising patients' ability to recuperate from the disease. The researchers investigated the feasibility of lactoferrin, a highly bioactive protein found in saliva and milk, as a treatment for TSA. As a consequence, cancer patients suffer poor appetite, weight loss, depression, and diminished nutrition, all of which are detrimental to recovery. Although TSA is widespread and a frequent complaint of cancer patients, until now, there have been no established therapies that reliably prevent or treat this problem.
