Researchers from the Kimmel Cancer Centre at Thomas Jefferson University at Philadelphia have found that vitamin K can help curb pancreatic and primary liver cancers when combined with the drug Nexavar. In the presence of vitamin K, the research team found they could use half the normal dose of Nexavar and still slow cancer growth.
The lower [...]
Mayo Clinic researchers have reported positive results in leukemia-related research involving the chemical epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an active ingredient in green tea. In the study, researchers found that lymphocyte count in study participants with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) was reduced by one-third when higher doses of EGCG were administered in capsule form. According to Dr. Tait Shanafelt, hematologist [...]
Current medical research has also shown that a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids DHA protects against advanced prostate cancer–even in men more at risk of the disease. Researchers in Egypt found that DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) reduces the accumulation of white blood cells at the molecular level.
The same researchers also found that DHA reduced [...]
Bladder cancer, which is one of the more difficult cancers to treat, is normally confronted with Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) injections. (BCG is an old tuberculosis vaccine that can produce an immune system response). While BCG injections have been shown to decrease post-surgery tumor recurrence, serious side effects (such as crippling arthritis) and even death have [...]
Pomegranate juice may slow the progression of post-treatment prostate cancer, according to a clinical trial which followed 48 prostate cancer patients over six years. Following cancer treatment, researchers tracked how long it took for PSA levels in the men to double. (PSA is a biomarker which indicates the presence of cancer. Doubling times are crucial [...]
Breast cancer patients who were deficient in vitamin D were 94% more likely to have their cancer spread, and 73% more likely to die, than women with normal levels, according to a study led by Dr. Pamela Goodwin of Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Canada.
In the study, the cases of 512 women (who were [...]
Researchers at Rochester University have shown, for the first time, that resveratrol (a natural antioxidant) can help destroy pancreatic cancer.
Researchers led by Dr. Paul Okunieff, chief of Radiation Oncology at the university, gave resveratrol to patients with pancreatic cancer prior to radiation treatment. Dr. Okunieff’s team found that when pancreatic cancer cells were doubly assaulted (e.g. pre-treated [...]
Researchers at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, led by Dr. Bharat Bhushan Aggarwal, have reported that the main ingredient of turmeric inhibits the spread of breast cancer and improves the effectiveness of current remedies. Scientists believe this compound, Curcumin, could lead to a new way of treating people in the advanced stages [...]
Scientists at the University of Rochester Medical Center have found that an extract of Feverfew kills malignant stem cells like no other single therapy previously tested. Particularly exciting is the fact that this Feverfew extract is the first agent known to destroy myeloid leukemia at the level of the stem cells. An increasing number of scientists believe that unless [...]« Previous Entries
