Controlled amino acid diet 'could help cancer treatment'
BBC News

A controlled diet that restricts certain amino acids could be used as an additional treatment for some cancer patients, according to Cancer Research UK. Researchers found that removing two non-essential amino acids, serine and glycine, from the diet of mice slowed the development of tumours.The diet could also make traditional cancer treatments more effective. But the report's authors warn against following a do-it-yourself diet.The report by the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute and the University of Glasgow is published in Nature. The researchers found that the development of lymphoma and intestinal cancer slowed in mice fed a diet without serine and glycine. The restricted diet also made some cancer cells more susceptible to chemicals known as reactive oxygen species. These same chemicals are boosted by chemotherapy and radiotherapy suggesting it could make the treatments more effective at killing cancer cells.
