Project main description:

Identification of key molecules which control functional changes such as muscle fatigue and weakness early in the pathophysiological process of muscle wasting due to cancer, will guide treatments aimed at reversing the debilitating impact this process on cancer sufferers. The significance of these findings are that patients with cancer experiencing poor muscle function will be given access to new treatments with subsequent improvements in muscle strength and quality of life.
