Abstract

Research reported in this issue of Science Translational Medicine illustrates the benefits of short-term food withdrawal (fasting) in the treatment of cancer. Fasting exploited fundamental differences in the way tumor cells and normal cells respond to stress, simultaneously strengthening normal cell function and weakening tumor cell survival in the presence of toxic doses of chemotherapeutic drugs.
