Summary
  • Practitioners are routinely faced with patients who are touched by cancer, whether it be through a strong personal or family history. Clinicians must be prepared to meet the needs of the one in two men and one in three women who will experience a diagnosis of cancer in their lifetime, and to provide services and support to the more than 15 million cancer survivors and the 18 million predicted by 2022 in the United States alone.



    Biomarkers may be used both to assess each patient’s unique physiology and tumor microenvironment in the general practice setting. Monitoring selected biomarkers can guide the clinician in the use of individualized interventions aimed at altering the bioterrain in order to address cancer incidence and recurrence. Clinicians will learn to use specific laboratory assessments and case studies so that they can develop personalized plans utilizing nutraceuticals, phytochemicals, functional foods, and dietary and lifestyle interventions.



  • Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and identify prognostic and predictive biomarkers that promote a carcinogenic and tumorogenic bioterrain

  • Understand how to monitor selected biomarkers utilizing laboratory assays

  • Understand and identify biomarker informed interventions utilizing natural compounds and functional foods for facing the challenges of cancer and promoting normal function
