Actuele ontwikkelingen over therapeutische behandelingen van lymfeklierkanker - non-Hodgkin zijn te lezen onder kankersoorten-lymfeklierkanker

Vrouwen die dagelijks voldoende hoeveelheden groenten en fruit eten verminderen de kans op lymfeklierkanker - non-Hodgkin. Dit blijkt uit de grote Nurses' Health Study waaruit heel vaak op wordt gewezen in wetenschappelijke kringen. Zie ook andere recentere studie die deze resultaten bevestigen. Groenten en fruit en eventueel bepaalde antioxidanten werken positief zowel in preventie als in therapeutische zin bij lymfeklierkanker.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is etiologically related to suppressed immune status, and certain nutrients found in fruits and vegetables have been associated with increased immune responses. However, limited information exists on associations between intake of fruits, vegetables, and related nutrients and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma risk. We thus examined these associations among 88,410 women in the Nurses' Health Study cohort who were aged 34-60 years in 1980 and provided dietary information in 1980.

During 14 years of follow-up, we documented 199 incident cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Higher intake of fruits and vegetables was associated with a lower risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (P for trend = 0.02); the multivariate relative risk (RR) was 0.62 [95% confidence interval (CI), 0.38-1.02] for women who consumed greater than or equal to six servings per day as compared with those consuming less than three servings per day. When fruits and vegetables were examined separately, intake of vegetables rather than fruits was most clearly associated with a reduced risk (P for trend = 0.02 for vegetables; P for trend = 0.16 for fruits); compared with those consuming less than one serving per day, the multivariate RRs were 0.62 (95% CI, 0.35-1.07) for women who consumed greater than or equal to three servings per day of vegetables and 0.70 (95% CI, 0.44-1.12) for women who consumed this amount of fruits. Higher intake of cruciferous vegetables was also associated with a decreased risk (P for trend = 0.03); the multivariate RR was 0.67 (95% CI, 0.40-1.11) for women who consumed greater than or equal to five servings per week as compared with those consuming less than two servings per week. These associations were slightly attenuated when we additionally adjusted for intake of beef, pork, or lamb as a main dish.

Intake of dietary fiber from vegetable sources was related to a reduced risk; the multivariate RR was 0.54 (95% CI, 0.34-0.87) for women in the highest quintile as compared with those in the lowest quintile (P for trend = 0.01), and it was slightly attenuated with additional adjustment for saturated and trans unsaturated fats. However, we observed no associations between intakes of specific dietary carotenoids, vitamins A, C, E, and folate, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma risk. Higher intake of vegetables, particularly cruciferous vegetables, may reduce the risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among women.
