Dietary deficiencies in zinc can contribute to single- and double-strand DNA breaks and oxidative modifications to DNA that increase risk for cancer development. Zinc accumulation exhibits anti-proliferative effects via its induction of mitochondrial apoptogenesis. Zinc accumulation also inhibits the invasive/migration activities in malignant prostate cells through zinc activation of specific intracellular signalling pathways. Consequently, these effects impose anti-tumour actions by zinc.The incidence of hypomagnesaemia at any point during chemotherapy was 43%. Cisplatin has the potential to produce both mild and severe side effects. The only toxicity was grade 1 hypomagnesaemia. These results support developing more conservative magnesium replacement guidelines for reducing cisplatin-induced AKI in cancer patients at risk for magnesium deficiency.Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency may contribute to musculoskeletal symptoms and bone loss observed in women taking aromatase inhibitors (Als).Indications:Chemo-Gap capsules assist in the maintenance of the essential nutrients that may be depleted as a result of cancer and the treatment thereof.Interactions:There is an increased risk of hypercalcemia if vitamin D is given with thiazide diuretics or calcium.
