Highlights

No two cancers are the same, nor are they treated the same, and neither should nutrition be the same for everyone. Nutrition includes foods like pulses, vegetables, fruits, nuts, oils, herbs and spices. Also nutrition includes supplements which are high concentrations of foods or high concentrations of individual ingredients found in foods. For cancers like High-grade B-cell Lymphoma when undergoing chemotherapy or when you determine you have a genetic risk for developing High-grade B-cell Lymphoma because of MYC and ID3 gene mutations, a very important question is “What foods should I avoid and what foods are recommended specifically for me?”. The other related question is “What nutritional supplements should I avoid?”.

There is no one answer to this question for cancers such as High-grade B-cell Lymphoma which can be found through internet searches. The answer to the question is “It Depends” because the nutrition plan needs to be personalized for you. Nutrition should depend on the cancer indication, genetic information, adult or pediatric, staging, primary or secondary, advanced, metastatic, relapsed or refractory, ongoing treatments if any, nutritional supplements being taken, age and factors like gender, weight, height, lifestyle, allergies and food preferences.

In short – the process to answer questions like “Should I Avoid eating fruit Apricot” or “Include fruit Pomegranate in my diet” or “Should I reduce consumption of vegetable Jute” or “Can I take Thunder God and Artemisinine supplements” is not as simple as internet searches. The process is very complex and answers are based on knowhow of genetics, action of treatments, active ingredients in foods and their associated biological action. Finally the answer to the nutrition question needs to be personalized for you.

RECOMMENDATION: PERSONALIZE YOUR FOODS AND SUPPLEMENTS TO HIGH-GRADE B-CELL LYMPHOMA, TREATMENTS, GENETIC INFORMATION, AND OTHER CONDITIONS.

The overall objective of personalized nutrition for High-grade B-cell Lymphoma is to minimize foods and nutritional supplements which have adverse interactions with cancer molecular drivers and ongoing treatments. And identify those foods and supplements which have a beneficial action. Whenever there are changes in treatments or diagnosis – it is important to remember that your foods and supplements need re-evaluation. And the answers to the nutrition question could be different based on the new context.

RECOMMENDATION: UPDATE YOUR NUTRITION FOR HIGH-GRADE B-CELL LYMPHOMA, WHEN TREATMENTS, DISEASE STATUS AND OTHER CONDITIONS CHANGE.



About High-grade B-cell Lymphoma

cBioPortal is one source of collection of cancer patient data from clinical trials across 350 plus cancer indications. The data from each clinical trial includes the clinical trial name and study details like number of patients, ages, gender, ethnicity, treatments, tumor site, genetic aberrations found and analysis of all the data. The cBioPortal for Cancer Genomics was originally developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). The public cBioPortal site is hosted by the Center for Molecular Oncology at MSK – https://www.cbioportal.org/about.

Following key highlights are derived from clinical data for High-grade B-cell Lymphoma from cBioPortal. From a patient sample size of 34; the top genes with mutations and other abnormalities for High-grade B-cell Lymphoma include genes MYC, TP53, KMT2D, ID3 and PCBP1. The occurrence frequency distribution for these genes respectively is 38.1%, 23.8%, 23.8%, 19.0% and 14.3%. These tumor genetic details of High-grade B-cell Lymphoma are mapped to molecular biochemical pathway drivers of cancer thereby providing definition of characteristic features of High-grade B-cell Lymphoma.

Significance of Nutrition for High-grade B-cell Lymphoma

All foods and nutritional supplements consist of a collection of one or more active chemical ingredients in different proportions and quantities. The action of some active ingredients in a food can have adverse interactions while other active ingredients in the same food may be supportive from the context of High-grade B-cell Lymphoma. Hence the same food has good and not-so-good actions and analysis of combined effect will be needed to come up with a personalized nutrition plan.

For example Apricot includes active ingredients Quercetin, Beta-sitosterol, Vitamin C, Oleic Acid, Salicylic Acid and others. And Pomegranate contains active ingredients Apigenin, Ellagic Acid, Betulinic Acid, Beta-sitosterol, Gallic Acid and others. It is likely that some of these active ingredients of the same food could have opposing effects and hence it is recommended to identify recommended foods based on analysis of all high quantity ingredients contained in foods.

For cancers like High-grade B-cell Lymphoma, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like RAS-RAF Signaling, Cell Cycle, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, MAPK Signaling plays an important role in driving cancer growth. Similarly different treatments work via different molecular actions which should never be canceled out by your foods and supplements. The foods and nutritional supplements contain different active ingredients each of which have a specific molecular action on different biochemical pathways. Hence, eating some foods and nutritional supplements would be recommended with a specific treatment of High-grade B-cell Lymphoma, while eating some other foods and supplements may not be recommended.

One common mistake when finding foods to eat or not – is to consider only a few active ingredients contained in foods based on internet searches and ignore the rest. Because different active ingredients contained in foods may have opposing effects on relevant biochemical pathways – it is recommended to consider all the high quantity active ingredients that are present in significant and much larger than trace amounts in the food.

For cancers like High-grade B-cell Lymphoma, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like RAS-RAF Signaling, Cell Cycle, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, MAPK Signaling plays an important role in driving cancer growth.

RECOMMENDATION: TO FIND RECOMMENDED AND NON-RECOMMENDED FOODS FOR HIGH-GRADE B-CELL LYMPHOMA – CONSIDER HIGH QUANTITY ACTIVE INGREDIENTS CONTAINED IN FOODS.

Foods for High-grade B-cell Lymphoma undergoing chemotherapy treatment

In High-grade B-cell Lymphoma – the genes MYC, TP53, KMT2D, ID3 and PCBP1 have high occurrences of genomic abnormalities. Not all of these genes necessarily are relevant for cancer – though they have been reported. Some of these genes directly or indirectly end up manipulating different cancer related biochemical biological pathways. Some of the pathways which are relevant drivers for High-grade B-cell Lymphoma are RAS-RAF Signaling, Cell Cycle, Notch Signaling and others. Radiation is one of the chemotherapies used for cancer treatment. The intent of treatment is to negate or cancel out effects of biochemical pathway drivers RAS-RAF Signaling, Cell Cycle, Notch Signaling so as to reduce disease progression and inhibit growth. Those foods whose combined action of active ingredients support treatment action and do not enhance disease drivers are recommended foods and supplements which will be included in personalized nutrition. And similarly – those foods whose combined action of active ingredients is not supportive of treatment action but end up promoting disease drives will not be recommended in your personalized nutrition plan.

RECOMMENDATION: AVOID SUPPLEMENTS AND FOODS WHICH ARE NOT SUPPORTIVE OF CANCER TREATMENT ACTION AND RATHER ENHANCE DISEASE DRIVERS.

Foods for Genetic Risk of High-grade B-cell Lymphoma

One of the ways to assess risk of cancer is by checking for presence of genetic abnormalities in a set of genes. There is prior information on a list of genes whose mutations and other aberrations can play a role in risk to different cancers. MYC and ID3 are two genes whose abnormalities are risk factors for High-grade B-cell Lymphoma. In such a cancer risk situation – while there are typically no treatments which a physician can prescribe – the various biochemical pathways which are potentially molecular drivers of High-grade B-cell Lymphoma can be used as a guide for coming up with a recommended personalized nutrition plan. For High-grade B-cell Lymphoma gene MYC has causative impact on biological pathways like Noncoding RNA Signaling and MAPK Signaling. And ID3 has a causative impact on biological pathways like TGFB Signaling. Foods and nutritional supplements which have molecular action to cancel out biochemical pathways effects of genes like MYC and ID3 should be included in a personalized nutrition plan. And those foods and supplements which promote the effects of genes MYC and ID3 should be avoided.
