Cachexia is a wasting syndrome characterized by weight loss. Cachexia is associated with chronic inflammatory conditions and cancer. It is a multifactorial syndrome characterized by loss of body weight, anorexia, anemia, and asthenia. It is more prevalent in patients with tumors of the lung, pancreas, and upper gastrointestinal tract as well as oral cancer patients. According to statistics, incidence of cachexia is high in developed regions such as North America, Europe, and Japan. Nearly 9 million individuals are affected by cachexia across the world. In the U.S., approximately 5 million individuals are affected by cachexia. The prevalence rate of cachexia varies from 5% to 15% in end-stage chronic heart failure to 50% to 80% in progressive cancer. The average mortality rate of cachexia for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is nearly 10% to 15%; 20% to 30% in individuals with chronic heart failure and chronic kidney disease, and approximately 80% in cancer patients.
