The ANICA study – the Adjuvant Nutritional Intervention in Cancer study – was an open clinical study conducted in Denmark in the 1990s. It was an interesting study with thought-provoking results. Its design reflected outside-the-box thinking.
The ANICA study enrolled 32 typical breast cancer patients who were classified high risk because their tumors had spread to the lymph nodes. The 32 women received the standard breast cancer treatment at the time. In addition, they were treated with an adjuvant therapy in the form of a combination of various micronutrients.
