Lactic acidosis: a metabolic complication of extensive metastatic cancer

European Journal of Cancer & Clinical Oncology
J P SculierJ Klastersky


Lactic acidosis is a rare metabolic complication of cancer. An analysis of the cases reported in the English and French literature shows that all the patients have extensive neoplastic disease. Metastatic hepatic lesions are present in the large majority of cases, suggesting that alteration of liver function is part of the clinical picture. Chemotherapy against the neoplastic disease is the only effective treatment of this type of lactic acidosis.

Cancer Metabolism

In order for cancer cells to maintain rapid, uncontrolled cell proliferation, they must acquire a source of energy. Cancer cells acquire metabolic energy from their surrounding environment and utilize the host cell nutrients to do so. Here is the latest research on cancer metabolism.
