- This research is most relevant for people with breast cancer.
- While it is possible that dietary intake of asparagine may influence, this hypothesis needs to be validated in human studies.
- Because this is early research in mice, the current clinical relevance is low given that many times, successful studies in animal models are not readily translatable to humans.
- This research is currently not achievable in humans.
Scientific Strength: Medium
- The research design and analysis of results were appropriate for this type of preliminary study in animals.
- While these early results in mice may one day translate to humans, these studies need to be validated in additional animal as well as human studies.
- Eliminating dietary asparagine is not possible. For humans, if this research proves true, other ways to reduce tumor asparagine levels must be devised.
