Brown fat may help improve cancer survival rates

Brown fat is not linked to cancer-associated loss of body weight and muscle mass, a common condition known as cachexia, according to a new joint study from The Rockefeller University and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. In addition, researchers discovered a trend suggesting brown fat, also called brown adipose tissue, may help improve survival in people with cancer. The findings are published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism.
