The Effect of Keto on Lymphedema
- In January 2017, Dr. Melissa Garcia Caballero joined the prestigious laboratory of Prof. Peter Carmeliet (Leuven, Belgium) to investigate the therapeutic role of ketone bodies supplementation in lymphedema.
- The exciting findings from this study raised interest among clinicians and triggered the initiation of a collaborative translational clinical Phase II trial (KetoLymph) to test the therapeutic potential of the ketogenic diet in cancer patients who develop lymphedema.
- Dr. García Caballero is co-author of more than 35 scientific publications and is a professor at the University of Málaga in Spain.
