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 Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor when undergoing chemotherapy or when you determine you have a genetic risk for developing Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor because of SUZ12 and ATM 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 Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor 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 Huckleberry” or “Include fruit Orange in my diet” or “Should I reduce consumption of vegetable Endive” or “Can I take Guggul and D-limonene 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 MALIGNANT PERIPHERAL NERVE SHEATH TUMOR, TREATMENTS, GENETIC INFORMATION, AND OTHER CONDITIONS.

The overall objective of personalized nutrition for Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor 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 MALIGNANT PERIPHERAL NERVE SHEATH TUMOR, WHEN TREATMENTS, DISEASE STATUS AND OTHER CONDITIONS CHANGE.

The occurrence frequency distribution for these genes respectively is 12.3%, 9.6%, 8.2%, 5.5% and 4.1%. These tumor genetic details of Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor are mapped to molecular biochemical pathway drivers of cancer thereby providing definition of characteristic features of Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor.

Significance of Nutrition for Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor

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 Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor. 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 Huckleberry includes active ingredients Quercetin, Resveratrol, Vitamin C, Caffeic Acid, P-coumaric Acid and others. And Orange contains active ingredients D-limonene, Modified Citrus Pectin, Linalool, Hesperidin, Vitamin C 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 Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like Inositol Phosphate Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Cell Cycle 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 Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor, 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 Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like Inositol Phosphate Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Cell Cycle plays an important role in driving cancer growth.

RECOMMENDATION: TO FIND RECOMMENDED AND NON-RECOMMENDED FOODS FOR MALIGNANT PERIPHERAL NERVE SHEATH TUMOR – CONSIDER HIGH QUANTITY ACTIVE INGREDIENTS CONTAINED IN FOODS.

Foods for Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor undergoing chemotherapy treatment

In Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor – the genes NF1, TP53, SUZ12, TERT and ATM 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 Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor are Inositol Phosphate Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, Amino Acid Metabolism and others. Trametinib is one of the chemotherapies used for cancer treatment. The intent of treatment is to negate or cancel out effects of biochemical pathway drivers Inositol Phosphate Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, Amino Acid Metabolism 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.
