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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma when undergoing chemotherapy or when you determine you have a genetic risk for developing Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma because of BIRC6 and PLEC 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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma 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 Pummelo” or “Include fruit Partridgeberry in my diet” or “Should I reduce consumption of vegetable Okra” or “Can I take Neem Extract and Dim 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 PAPILLARY RENAL CELL CARCINOMA, TREATMENTS, GENETIC INFORMATION, AND OTHER CONDITIONS.

The overall objective of personalized nutrition for Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma 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 PAPILLARY RENAL CELL CARCINOMA, WHEN TREATMENTS, DISEASE STATUS AND OTHER CONDITIONS CHANGE.



About Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma

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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma from cBioPortal. The patients enrolled in the studies for Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma are in ages between 3 to 88 with an average age of 60. 73.0% of males and 27.0% of females were the distribution of gender in these clinical studies. From a patient sample size of 938; the top genes with mutations and other abnormalities for Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma include genes BIRC6, PLEC, DYNC1H1, FASN and CENPE. The occurrence frequency distribution for these genes respectively is 2.7%, 2.1%, 2.1%, 1.8% and 1.8%. These tumor genetic details of Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma are mapped to molecular biochemical pathway drivers of cancer thereby providing definition of characteristic features of Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma.

Significance of Nutrition for Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma

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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma. 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 Pummelo includes active ingredients Chlorogenic Acid, Beta-sitosterol, Naringin, Linolenic Acid, Hesperetin and others. And Partridgeberry contains active ingredients Resveratrol, Beta-sitosterol, Stigmasterol 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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like Post Translation Modification, RAS-RAF Signaling, Small Molecule Transport, Focal Adhesion 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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma, 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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like Post Translation Modification, RAS-RAF Signaling, Small Molecule Transport, Focal Adhesion plays an important role in driving cancer growth.

RECOMMENDATION: TO FIND RECOMMENDED AND NON-RECOMMENDED FOODS FOR PAPILLARY RENAL CELL CARCINOMA – CONSIDER HIGH QUANTITY ACTIVE INGREDIENTS CONTAINED IN FOODS.

Foods for Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma undergoing chemotherapy treatment

In Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma – the genes BIRC6, PLEC, DYNC1H1, FASN and CENPE 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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma are Post Translation Modification, RAS-RAF Signaling, mRNA Splicing 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 Post Translation Modification, RAS-RAF Signaling, mRNA Splicing 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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma

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. BIRC6 and PLEC are two genes whose abnormalities are risk factors for Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma. 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 Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma can be used as a guide for coming up with a recommended personalized nutrition plan. For Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma gene BIRC6 has causative impact on biological pathways like . And PLEC has a causative impact on biological pathways like Extracellular Matrix Remodelling. Foods and nutritional supplements which have molecular action to cancel out biochemical pathways effects of genes like BIRC6 and PLEC should be included in a personalized nutrition plan. And those foods and supplements which promote the effects of genes BIRC6 and PLEC should be avoided.
