Abstract

Taste and smell alteration is a frequent side effect of chemotherapy. However, little is known about their influence on patients' food behavior and the mechanisms underpinning their occurrence. This lack of clarity is likely due to a series of factors among which heterogeneity in chemotherapy-induced taste and smell modifications may play a prominent role. The present review provides a critical overview of the evidence on the association between taste and smell alterations and food behavior modifications in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The literature search was performed using PubMed and Google Scholar databases and restricted to literature for English-language articles published between 1990 and June 2018. Sensory-related terms were combined with food behavior-related terms to identify the studies that examined the association between these two terms. The retrieved studies were grouped based on the taste and smell assessment outcomes. Thirteen eligible articles were included in the review. The studies varied in design, length, methodology of assessment, and studied population. The categorization of studies depending on taste and smell assessment outcomes allowed the definition of three patient profiles: unaltered, ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death.
