malnutrition is a common complication in patients with cancer and is associated with immunosuppression and alterations with inflammatory response. the aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of enteral nutrition supplemented with two enteral formulas on inflammatory markers (CRP, IL-6 and FNT) in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. randomized control trial, conducted at the Hospital Juarez of Mexico in patients with cancer undergoing chemotherapy with IRN < 97.5 and SGA B/C. Patients were randomly allocated to two groups: group I (immunomodulatory), group II (high 3). The intervention began on the first day of chemotherapy until day 10 after. We evaluated nutritional status and an inflammatory marker on days 0, +5, +10 QT. Statistical analysis was performed with T Student, x2 and analysis of variance for repeated measurements. P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. a total of 29 patients were analyzed, 27 (62.8%) females and 16 (37.2%) males. Mean age 43.91 + 11.3 years old. Malnutrition prevalence was 48.8% moderate and 51.2% severe. Prealbumin levels significantly increase in group II vs group I (p < 0.05). Both groups maintenance body weight, lean mass and fat mass. No decrease levels of CRP, IL-6 and FNT. enteral supplementation during chemotherapy inhibits nutritional deterioration and maintenance body weight and lean mass. No decreased levels of inflammatory markers.
