Cancer Cachexia and Cytokines----

NIH Guide: CACHEXIA: RESEARCH INTO BIOBEHAVIORAL MANAGEMENT AND QUALITY OF LIFE: "Cachexia"

Pulled this off the web after reading and researching a teeny bit about how TNF suppresses the appetite of people who are ill. So is this why the man does not eat any more? I mean the way he used to. He used to LOVE food- and now it is an obligatory thing you do because it is good for you. Nutrition and exertion are obviously linked- he does less so he needs more, but you know he really has changed.

The other thing- does the Topomax stuff increase TNF? Which would cause anorexia and a host of other things? Things that made me think today....
