Macmillan Weight Loss and Eating Study (MAWE)

Funder: Macmillan Cancer Support
PI: Jane Hopkinson

Weight loss and loss of appetite are commonly experienced symptoms in people with advanced cancer. Yet, little is known about how to help people live with the symptoms.

Since 2000 Macmillan Cancer Support has funded a series of three studies of weight loss and eating difficulties (listed below). The purpose of these studies is to find out how best to help patients and their carers live with weight loss and change in eating habits.
