There are various human cancers which actively synthesize particular attribute proteins equivalent to melanomas, thyroid melanoma and squamous telephone carcinoma. Many melanoma researchers have in fact attempted to make use of this particular task as a key for the selective remedy of cancers. some time past for instance, the molecular hybrid compound of DOPA, a substrate of melanin, and nitrogen mustard N-oxide hydrochloride, a ctyotoxic anti-tumor drug, used to be synthesized as Melphalan and used to regard malignant cancer.

The problem of maintaining sterility and the non-pyrogenicity of the infusion is quite considerable over such a protracted period. Apart from the nutrients already mentioned, vitamin C status should be maintained, erring towards excess in order to achieve tissue saturation, as this vitamin plays an important role in wound healing. After Treatment The problem of restoring the patient's nutritional state after treatment has been completed, varies in difficulty with each individual patient. There are obviously a number of factors involved such as the extent of disablement, the age of the patient, his circumstances, and his environmental conditions, to mention but a few.

These are (1) Surgery, (2) Radiotherapy, (3) Chemotherapy. (1) Surgery The extent of the "catabolic phase" after a major operation is measured by the nitrogen output in the urine, and this is related to the state of protein nutrition of the body at the time of injury, and also to the severity of the injury. Previously well-nourished patients produce a maximum catabolic response if the injury is sufficiently severe (Moore and Ball, 1952). The malnourished patient who is already deficient in protein produces a less marked response, and in the very severely malnourished there may be little or no increase in urinary nitrogen excretion.
