Formatted Abstract/Summary
The aim of this study was to examine the role of a protein and energy dense, n-3 fatty acid enriched, oral supplement on spontaneous food consumption in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer. Two hundred patients (105C, 95E) were randomised to receive two cans/day of a protein and energy dense supplement (620kcal, 32g protein ± 2.2g eicosapentaenoic acid) in this international, multicenter, double blind trial.

Although both groups stopped losing weight (E: -0.25 kg/month versus C: -0.37 kg/month) and LBM (E: 0.27 kg/month versus C: 0.12 kg/month) over the eight week study period, patients in the experimental group had a significant increase in total (meal plus supplement) energy and protein intake from baseline. There was no such increase in total energy intake in the control group. Furthermore, protein intake was significantly correlated to weight and LBM in the experimental, but not the control group.
